Spirit of Maryville 2017: Stephanie Stegman

Stephanie Stegman earned a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Maryville in 2008. She has never looked back, except to remember the positive experiences and supportive relationships she developed while on campus.

Stegman applies the professionalism she learned at Maryville in her position with Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where she coordinates field work for other therapists. And, in a textbook model of paying it forward, she holds an adjunct faculty position at Maryville. Now Stegman provides the same level of support and mentorship to students that she received on campus. Giving back is a Maryville value Stegman has embraced.

As a volunteer with Rebuilding Together St. Louis, she helps the organization not only restore homes in the area, but also makes sure they match the needs of the person in the home with their physical abilities. Stegman is a member of Maryville’s Duchesne Society and National Leadership Council.
