Stephanie Engelman is the award-winning author of the novel, A Single Bead, a professional speaker, and former Marketing & Communications professional.

The mother of five, Stephanie's husband suffered a serious brain injury in 2015, resulting in significant memory loss. Thus spurred by a deep understanding of the important role memories play in our lives and the lives of those who love us most, Stephanie began Inkwell Personal Histories in a desire to utilize her gifts and talents while helping families capture the cherished memories of their loved ones. 

Stephanie delights in walking with her clients down memory lane, feels blessed to hear their stories, and finds that she learns something new from every client whose story she has the honor to write.
