DUCHESS OF LARK LIX
Stephanie Skinner grew up in Minnesota in a suburb just outside of Minneapolis and always enjoyed outdoor activities, spending her summers waterskiing and playing tennis and softball. Learning to ski at 5 years old on the so-called "hills" of Minnesota and Wisconsin, she formed a passion for winter sports. After high school, she attended the University of North Dakota. She later worked in Yellowstone National Park. In the summer of 1996, Stephanie took a trip with friends to hike in Glacier National Park and discovered Whitefish. The magic of the town took hold and she immediately knew this is where she belonged. She returned to Whitefish 7 days later will all of her belongings in tow to stay for good. In 2001, Stephanie obtained her real estate license and specializes in real estate at Whitefish Mountain Resort as an associate with Glacier Sotheby's International Realty.
Stephanie married the love of her life, Tony Spear this past August in Whitefish. In the winter you can usually find them on the mountain and in the summer, it's not uncommon to find them camping along a river somewhere in the valley with their Golden Retreiver, Leo.
