Stephanie Larson is the Assistant Director of Student Programs and Marketing at the Technology Entrepreneur Center. She joined TEC in March 2008, and her responsibilities include program marketing and evaluation, coordinating public relations efforts and logistics of TEC programs and events and communicating with local media, students, partners, alumni and the UI community. The thing she enjoys most about working at TEC is the passion the students and her co-workers share about entrepreneurship and innovation.

Prior to working at TEC, Stephanie worked on numerous grassroots marketing and event marketing campaigns. She even spent a year of her life driving a giant 22 foot Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Mobile from coast to coast. She worked with many clients such as Kellogg's, Nike, Yellowtail Wine, Florida Department of Citrus, Home Depot, Kraft Foods, Cadillac and Sprint in a variety of marketing capacities.

Stephanie graduated from the University of Illinois in 1998 with a B.S. in Advertising & Communications. She plans on returning for her M.B.A. in the next year or two.

In her spare time, Stephanie enjoys reading, exploring different culinary cuisines, travel, movies, arts and crafts and is now learning the joy of gardening. She just joined the Monticello community with her husband, Scott and their sons, Ander and Atwood.
