Little Known Facts About Stephanie

Stephanie Anderson was born in New York City, but lived part of the year in Wyoming on her family's cattle ranch.  Having spent the whole of her life trying to get her New York family to understand her Wyoming family and vice versa, she decided to study formally the interaction of different cultures in international relations.  Her mother sent her to a half French - half American school in New York City so she would be fluent enough to marry the Prince of Monaco.  She married Tom Seitz instead.  She is the mother of two girls, and has many animals:  two cats, three llamas, and many chickens, turkeys, horses and cows.  She owns a cattle ranch, not too far away, which her family homesteaded about 150 years ago.
