Stephanie Mason Blake
Although a native of Boca Raton, Florida, Stephanie grew up in the sport of swimming slightly further south in Fort Lauderdale. As a nationally competitive swimmer, she earned an athletic scholarship to The University of Virginia where she graduated with a degree in Rhetoric and Communications Studies.
Her life’s work has been raising her four children whose ages now range from 17 to 31. Having spent much of that time in Maryland, Kentucky and Rhode Island, she recently moved to Raleigh from State College, Pennsylvania where she had lived for 12 years. In addition to enjoying all of the fun of Penn State University’s college-town culture, she spent several years working in the counseling office of a large public high school. She is happy to continue a career in education, now as a member of the Wolfpack community here at NC State!
