As a public health practitioner, Stephanie is passionate about holistic health, learning, and balance. She earned her undergraduate degree from BYU and her Master of Public Health degree from Boston University.

In this interview, Stephanie talks shop about all things workplace wellness, including the impact of workplace culture on wellness and vice versa.

HealthEquity’s internal mentorship program lines up coworkers who wouldn’t otherwise work together, so employees can learn from each other.

They’ve also established a career path series so employees can learn about different opportunities within the company.
