Say Hello to the Queen of the Accordion, Stephanie Miller
Copywriter and Copy Editor
WHAT’S YOUR AVERAGE DAY LIKE AT ONEUPWEB?
I uphold the responsibilities of being the newest person at OUW, which include remembering names (spouses too!), learning SEO and other juicy content strategies from supportive teachers, writing a lot, and trying not to use the serial comma—ha! I’m not deleting that one.
WHAT MAKES TRAVERSE CITY APPEALING?
I moved here a few months ago, and I felt like the minute I started networking, the community just gave me a big hug. I’ve met some amazingly sincere and kind people, and I already think of TC as home. You can’t beat the lake, the surrounding natural areas, and city amenities mixed with Midwestern friendliness!
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT AT WORK?
I love to get outside for exercise and woods/water time. I enjoy making art of all kinds, including playing music (on my piano, accordion or Spotify). I’m working on learning to carve wood and cook meat and sauces better!
IT’S 5:30 PM – WHAT’S YOUR COCKTAIL OF CHOICE?
I love a Professional: bourbon, Jamaican or white rum (I prefer white), Campari, twist of orange.
WHAT’S THE LAST SONG YOU INTENTIONALLY LISTENED TO?
“Baby Bluebird” by Fruit Bats
WHAT DO YOU CARRY IN YOUR PURSE/MAN-BAG?
Besides the usual, I carry my favorite pocket knife, my trusty Nalgene, too much Chap Stick, pens and paper, and little rocks or whatever I pick up along the trail.

Book: Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson (I can’t stop rereading this book.)

WHAT’S YOUR SECRET GUILTY PLEASURE?

Catching a fish and cleaning/cooking it on site.
