Stephanie Sack, the Barge Lady’s Marketing Maven, is happiest when conceptualizing, creating, and compiling many of the Barge Lady’s fun and fresh marketing materials, from chatty blog posts to captivating press releases.
The daughter and sister to Barge Ladies Ellen Sack and Caroline Sack Klein, respectively, Stephanie’s twenty-plus years of professional experience includes lifestyle retailing, client relations, audience development, and brand marketing. She is now honored and proud to be part of the Barge Lady dynasty – and fortunately likes her “co-workers” very much!
In 2014, Stephanie came to the Barge Lady as a total newbie to the barging experience. In October of that year, she hopped onboard a Barge Lady favorite, Luciole, and set off on her first barge adventure in Northern Burgundy. It’s safe to say her debut barge cruise on the Luciole was a smashing success, and in fact created a bit of a monster, as she now regularly asks/pleads/cajoles to be sent back to Europe for even more barge cruising! Read all abut her cruise in the southwest of France on the barge Saint Louis here.
In her free time, Stephanie practices hot yoga, namely the Bikram method, and can often be found taking advantage of Chicago’s many cultural activities with a focus on all things related to cinema. She is a loving Auntie to Caroline Klein’s two children, a longtime reader of non-fiction, and a consistent attendee of Burning Man.
“My interest in local experiences, world history, and handcrafted cuisine translates perfectly to world of canal cruising! I cannot think of a better way than barging to authentically explore Europe’s many cultural treasures, both large and small.” – Stephanie
