Stephanie Allard

Stephanie Allard is a West Virginia native, spending most of her life in Raleigh County. Stephanie is a graduate of Independence High School and she earned a degree in accounting and business management from Mountain State University. Stephanie is currently the Director of Development for West Virginia University Institute of Technology and has worked in higher education for more than 10 years.

Stephanie and her husband of 20 years, David Allard, have three children ages 10, 8, and 5. Most days you can find her on the side lines of some athletic venue. You will spot her quickly as she is usually one of the loudest. When they aren’t on the field or court, they love to be outside doing almost anything.

Stephanie believes in giving back and hopes to instill these same values in her children. She and her family try to volunteer with different organizations throughout the year so her children can see the various needs throughout their own community.

Although, Stephanie says she doesn’t have any dance abilities at all; she looks forward to helping support the United Way and the community her family calls home by participating in Dancing with the Stars.
