Stephanie Robertson

Digital Communications

Stephanie Robertson is skilled in writing, blogging, and social media--so Digital Communications is a perfect fit.  She enjoys writing, photography, interacting with people, and (as nerdy as it sounds) coming up with hashtags!

When her family first visited Central Valley, they fell in love with the warm, friendly congregation.  The Robertsons caught the passion of helping with this unique church plant and joined in 2017.

Stephanie lives with her husband, their fun teenage daughter, a bearded dragon, two dogs, fish, and a few aquatic frogs.  She enjoys kayaking, horseback riding, traveling, yoga, art, and music.  She has a degree in Human Environmental Sciences from the University of Alabama.  #RTR!
