Stephanie Gardner

Administrative Assistant

Customer service and taking care of others has always been a part of Stephanie’s life. In her early years, she worked as a Personal Care Assistant taking care of children with special needs in their home. When she had children of her own, she took some time off and stayed home to be with them full-time. Once they became a little older, Stephanie dabbled in retail sales but the schedule was burdensome and didn’t allow her to have the time she wanted with her family. She finally decided it was time to pursue her dream of working in healthcare. Stephanie obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration and took a job at the local hospital in the Admissions Department. Stephanie’s natural desire to help and serve others allowed her to quickly move into a leadership role, where she stayed for almost 7 years.

In December of 2021, Stephanie made the tough decision to walk away from the Healthcare Industry. “I was drained, I needed a change and to find something that I could be passionate about again ... serving others. Laurie is a fellow softball mom and our girls have played on the same team. When I saw she was looking for someone to join the Granite Financial family, I knew I had to learn more.” The financial industry has always been something Stephanie has been interested in. “I am excited to be a part of something again. I look forward to serving our clients, forming relationships, and supporting the financial professionals who are helping others work towards successfully planning for their futures.”

Stephanie grew up in St. Cloud and currently resides in Becker with her husband, Conrad, and their 4 children.  When not at work, you will most likely find them at one of their kids’ sporting events. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with family and friends, sharing a good meal with others, and traveling. Stephanie & Conrad recently became licensed Foster Care providers and are looking forward making a difference in another child’s life.
