Stephanie Thornton

HR Director

Stephanie was born and raised in Mesa, making her a third-generation Arizonan. She graduated from ASU with a Bachelor’s Education – go Sun Devils – and from Arizona College for Medical Billing and Coding and has received her CCA certification. She taught 8th grade Math both before and after raising her six children: three girls and three boys. She met her husband at ASU, and they have been enjoying life together for over 30 years.

Stephanie is very proud of her children. Three have graduated from ASU and are now pursuing their careers or higher degrees. One is currently attending ASU, and another is just starting college. The youngest is still in high school and figuring out his next steps. Stephanie is embarking on her next chapter, as she knows it won’t involve teaching anymore. She has two grandbabies whom she misses dearly, as they live in another state. Stephanie loves to read, relax, and bake—especially pies, although she doesn’t enjoy the mess they make!
