Growing up, Stephanie Scott could always be found with a book in her hand or bag. By junior high school, her love for storytelling expanded to include the words and images found in blogs. After graduating from Spelman College, her fascination with impactful words propelled her to begin a career in communications. She started out working for fashion giants Tommy Hilfiger and Kenneth Cole, and when a beauty editor position opened up at Essence blog—in the halls of which she once in-terned—she jumped at the opportunity to begin a career telling stories.

Stephanie loved hearing about new-product launches and worked as a beauty editor, writing stories for top publications including Seventeen, Natural Health and Life & Style Weekly. A creative at heart, she would often reimagine alternate ways that the beauty brands she met with could launch the latest cream, oil, color or scent. When she received an offer to work as the director of public relations for a luxury skin-care company, she took a leap of faith and decided to try something different, believing that if you do what you love, you will do it well.

In that role, she oversaw all domestic and regional public relations and marketing for new and existing products. She was then promoted to director of communications, overseeing all global communications, store training, product education and social media. Things were going well; but when a friend of a friend offered her what some would say is the role of a lifetime—working with Usher on his O.M.G Tour—she took a vacation from beauty to work on a world tour. An entrepreneur at heart, Stephanie loved the nuances of each day. The tour was exciting and highly successful, and it pushed her planning skills to a new level. When it ended, she decided to return to her first love—the beauty industry—and start her own company: First and Last PR, where Stephanie serves as the CEO & Communicator-in-Chief.
