Stephanie Pendrys returned to the world of academia after spending the past 14 years in digital marketing, social media and graphic design with a background in college/professional sports.

A marathoner (14 and counting, including Boston) she loves to travel, sports, Jimmy Buffett, Kurt Vonnegut and all the dogs. She dislikes peas, the Hallmark Channel and Oxford commas.

Personal highlights to date include getting lost in Paris, losing her passport in Mexico, meeting Cal Ripken Jr. and skipping her UofSC M.M.C. graduation in favor of a trip to Key West. Pendrys would  like to be Bill Bryson when she grows up.
