Stephanie Wall became part of the Volunteer family in June 2017 as the business manager for the Department of Theatre. Wall joined the College of Arts and Sciences administrative team as the financial administrator in January.
Wall has a degree in business and accounting from Indiana State University. After graduating, Wall and her husband moved to Arizona where she worked as the finance director for a large nonprofit animal shelter while he completed his coursework for a doctoral degree in the School of Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University. They moved back to Indiana to welcome their first child, Zaela. Before coming to UT, Wall worked as the director of finance for residential programs and services at Indiana University.
“My favorite thing about UT is its location,” said Wall, who is originally from Southern Indiana.
When she is not at work, Wall spends her time as a chauffeur to her two daughters – Zaela, a dancer, and Sadie, a gymnast.
“I spend a lot of time taking them to practice or competition,” Wall said. “We also have a puppy that likes to go to on long walks and is always causing trouble.”
When Wall gets time for herself, she hits the gym for a cycling class.
Her life motto? “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
Wall loves to laugh and if there was one person whom she could have lunch with, it would be George Carlin.
“He had a sarcastically smart, free-spirited, challenging kind of humor I appreciate,” Wall said. “If anything, he would make lunch interesting!”
