Moderator:

Stephanie Grose
PK-12 Education Studio Principal
TreanorHL

Stephanie Grose has been ingrained in Colorado educational design for over 23 years and believes wholeheartedly that great school design comes from putting students and teachers first. This is why school districts in every corner of the state have trusted her to create thoughtful and innovative spaces, from Lochbuie to Parachute and Steamboat Springs to Del Norte. An avid student herself of the science behind engaging and diverse learning environments, Stephanie is committed to contributing to the built environment in a sustainable way that provides each and every student the same opportunity for success.

A principal and premier thought leader within TreanorHL’s education studio, she is one of their most requested architects in large part due to the bond she forges with the clients, stakeholders, and communities with whom she works. She is a member of the American Institute of Architects and holds a bachelor’s degree of Science in Architectural Studies from the University of Nebraska and a master’s degree in Architecture from the University of Colorado.
