Professional Bio

Stefanie, ‘The Life Architect,' is a Nuyorican Afro-Latina. As a certified professional empowerment and performance coach, keynote speaker, writer, and podcaster, Stefanie actively spreads her empowerment message to aid everyone, specifically, girls and women of all ages and backgrounds to build, customize, and design their emotional lives. Her career was forged through her employment on Wall Street, serving in a high-pressure, high-volume environment for high-net-worth clients. Stefanie combines her knowledge from corporate America and life experiences - growing up in the Bronx and Harlem, New York - to lead as Founder and CEO of Better Life Choices of New York (BLCNY), an empowerment organization she began in 2015 that specializes in life coaching for emotional health, pain management, change management, personal development, and life skills.

What I Really Want To Say...

I've worked on the 'right' words to share with you about who I am. I prefer the work I've done on myself, removing my mask, with others, and in creating Better Life Choices of New York to speak for me. My anonymity is incredibly precious to me, and putting myself 'out there,' frightens me, at times. But it is important to me that I practice what I preach to you, and dance with my fear, instead of forcing myself to try and eliminate it, be brave, never fearless, and open some of my world up to you. I appreciate your curiosity, presence, and willingness to begin making Better Life Choices. You, your fears, goals, needs, and your emotions are welcome and safe here.

Wife, daughter, sister, friend, aunt, entrepreneur, writer, life coach, speaker, podcaster; all of these are titles I possess, but none of them define who I am. Who am I?  I am a brave soul, who travels this earth, seeking purpose, connection, happiness, healing, growth, knowledge, inspiration, kindness, pleasure, fun, luxury, understanding, balance; and most importantly, love.

You matter. How you feel matters. What you have to say matters.

I believe in you.
