Stephanie Eichenberg, Vice President
I am a South Toledo native and returned to the neighborhood with my husband, David, when we started a family. I have a first grade student, Eden, here at Beverly and a 4 year old Bobcat in waiting, Ella. I work in Market Research, focused on demographics and numbers. When I’m not running kids round I enjoy art, travel and reading. I believe that parent involvement makes a huge difference in our children’s education and I am happy to see many parents supporting their students at Beverly.
