A lifelong Catholic and advocate of service and justice, Stephanie was appointed President of the Center for FaithJustice in April 2015. She is an executive in the non-profit sector with more than 15 years of experience in all aspects of philanthropic management. Early in her career, she served as an Assistant Vice President at Community Counselling Service (CCS Fundraising), directing several major campaigns, development audits, and feasibility studies for a diverse client roster. Upon leaving that firm, Ms. Peddicord assumed senior leadership positions at two non-profit organizations, both of which drew upon not only her fundraising expertise but also broader skill set in administration and communications. In 2009, she founded Peddicord Consulting, LLC, a boutique firm that has allowed her to provide a scope of capacity-building services to non-profit clients. Having had deeply transformative service experiences herself as a teen and young adult, Stephanie views this appointment as a full circle moment of opportunity to impact the community and the future of the Catholic Church. As President, she spearheads visioning, external affairs, and strategic planning and partnerships.
