Meet Steph Drewnowski

Steph Drewnowski became a Seattle native in middle school after her family moved from DC to pursue opportunities in the tech industry. A graduate from Washington State University, Steph leverages her public relations degree running strategy, leadership enablement, and business management as a Chief of Staff at Microsoft. Her role allows her to ensure that Microsoft Azure is the most reliable and resilient cloud – especially for their most strategic customers, including those in life and safety.  

As a Microsoft GIVE champion, Steph consistently leads her team to first place in Microsoft’s annual GIVE campaign. She shares stories of her journey with childhood ovarian cancer, her daughter’s rare genetic skin disorder, and her husband’s veteran status to encourage team members to find causes that matter to them. She firmly believes that her team connects on a deeper level because they learn about each other’s passions and how they each act as community stewards. Aside from the Junior League of Omaha, Steph serves on many organizations focused on women and children: NorthStar Foundation Guild, Omaha Alumnae Panhellenic Association, Omaha Children’s Museum Rainbow Guild, Omaha Children’s Rose Theater Guild, Laurtizen Garden Guild, and is the President of the Tri Delta Omaha alumnae chapter. She provides technical expertise to these organizations which nicely blends her expertise from work. 

Despite her husband, Matt, being a Navy submarine officer, they were assigned shore duty at Offutt AFB in Omaha, Nebraska (…where there is no ocean!). They fell in love with the Midwest and planted roots with the help of the wonderful ladies Steph met through the League. Steph resides in Nebraska with her husband, two daughters, Lorelei (2.5) and Millie (1), and goldendoodle, Wilma. She’s currently working on an MA in Strategic Communication from her alma mater and an MBA with an emphasis on Sustainability from the University of Nebraska. When not working , studying, or volunteering, Steph loves traveling with her family, watching hockey (Go Kraken!) and baseball (Go Nationals!), enjoying musical theater, and collecting wine. Steph has been to 49 states and is hoping to finally get to Alaska next year. She would love to chat with you about Ted Lasso, Mad Men, or her ranked order of Muppet movies!
