After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2003, Stephanie found herself painfully unprepared for life after college. Unsure of what career direction her life should take, Stephanie accepted and offer with a staffing agency in Milwaukee.
Unknowingly, this decision formed the foundation of Stephanie’s career in staffing and human resources. Over the course of the next eight years, Stephanie was able to expand her talents to include interviewing and counseling employees through some of their biggest life decisions.
As a rising star in human resources, Stephanie continued to climb the corporate ladder even as she relocated to Washington, DC. Interviewing, hiring, counseling, supporting and directing, both domestically and internationally, Stephanie found a professional niche where she excelled. While on staff, she has facilitated career preparation and transition workshops for students and professionals at Capital One (formally, Chevy Chase Bank) and United States Pharmacopeia.
After nearly a decade in corporate America, Stephanie found herself at a major career and life crossroads and after months of looking – she leaped into entrepreneurship, creating Exchange Network, LLC consulting services and HerExchange.com.
Today, Stephanie is an entrepreneur, Career Strategist, speaker and writer for HerExchange by Stephanie Goetsch and YFS Magazine. Each day, Stephanie calls upon her professional expertise and passion to support women through their professional crossroads by coaching women to spark their professional passion and build a career they love in her SPARK Career Coaching program, SPARKCollege and Look to Leaping Entrepreneurial Coaching.

On HerExchange.com, Stephanie interviews experts, authors, celebrities, activists and more, uncovering their stories of success as a beacon to every woman navigating her own path. Stephanie deeply believes that we are stronger together – no one can succeed alone. On HerExchange, together, we move to our very best.

What People Are Saying
“When I found myself at the pinnacle crossroads between “dive in head first” and “flee away in fear”, Stephanie strategically and thoughtfully guided me down the right path. I am so thankful for her wisdom and advice. It was just what I needed.” V. Logan Madison, WI
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.” – David Thoreau. This has always been my motto in life but somewhere between the entrepreneurial struggle and the comfort & ease that comes with aligning yourself with a corporate machine I lost sight of my life’s path and purpose. The voice that always propelled me to march to the beat of my own drummer; toward happiness, fulfillment, and passion had become a faint whisper. Then I met Stephanie, who like a guide at the crossroad cast a light on the path from which I had lost my way. Acting as inspirations sounding board Stephanie gave me perspective, and focus; inspiring me to leap into my best life!” J. Allen Washington, DC
“I was introduced to Stephanie and HerExchange a little over a year ago at a major point of transition in my life. I found Stephanie’s articles and interviews both informative and insightful. I was motivated to be better and do better every time I visited HerExchange. I have changed the way that I eat and fallen in love with some great products all based on the information I have received from Stephanie and HerExchange. I look forward to what is to come! KUDOS!” Robrette V. Washington, D.C.
“Earlier this year I was reading through a few of the articles on HerExchange when I came across the article about Michelle Rhee. I was immediately amazed by her story and what she is doing for students not only in D.C. but across the country. Because of HerExchange running this article I was made aware of Michelle Rhee’s site studentsfirst.org. Shortly after reading this article, I made the decision to become more involved with my son’s school. In fact, we are in the process of fighting for the expansion of his elementary school! Thank you HerExchange!!” H. Pergolski Milwaukee, WI
“After meeting Steph, I was even more impressed with the mission statement of the website. It was so easy talking to her. We laughed, we cried (okay, the crying may have been a result of the laughing, but you get the point,) and we digressed. After we were done talking, I felt energized and inspired.
