Stephanie Kunes was born and raised in Canandaigua, graduating from Canandaigua Academy. In 1981 Stephanie answered an ad from Rochester Area Multiple Sclerosis (RAMS) for a bus driver to drive disabled adults living with MS to various recreation programs. Stephanie was hired and discovered her passion – helping those living with MS overcome the many challenges the disease can bring, and that was the beginning of her amazing career with now a much larger organization that she now leads as President and CEO. She has challenged the women around her to be the best that they can be by putting them in leadership positions, giving them opportunities to try new things and providing access to resources to help them grow, both professionally and personally. A seasoned public speaker, Stephanie is able to spread her passion to others, inspiring them to get involved, take action and make a difference. Her words motivate the audience with her unique ability to add humor that creates a lasting and passionate message.
