In episode 13 we hear from Stephanie Giddens at our March 2017 Polished Dallas luncheon. Stephanie has a passion for empowering women. In 2009, she co-founded Polished to address the need she saw for young professional women to connect faith with real life. Over time, her passion for social justice grew, and she and her husband planned to move to East Africa to pursue business as missions in order to empower marginalized women. In a heartbreaking turn of events, the move fell through, but it inspired the work that she does today. She is founder and president of Vickery Trading Company, a children’s clothing line that renews hope to refugee women in Dallas. She is a proud graduate of Texas A&M and holds a Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. Stephanie lives in Dallas with her husband Brad and their three young children.This episode is sponsored by Vickery Trading Company.
