"I also just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your work and commitment to our veterans. I can see how much you care about them and helping them on their path to healing. They are so lucky to have this partnership with you.” 
"Stephanie brings a unique gift to my training. My work with her has been individualized to my physical needs, and it fits with both my training and my schedule. Stephanie understands the athlete in a way that will help you gain movement quality and positional power.  We’ve addressed everything from warm up to recovery, and I am a better athlete for it!”
"Thank you for all of your help over the past year. I went to a Crossfit class here in Chicago and there were burpee box jumps and running, and I did both with no knee pain – woohoo! (The box was 12 inches, but progress haha!). I appreciate your patience and positive encouragement so very much, and value the time I got to spend with you.”
