Get to Know Stephanie Taylor

 A devout lover & believer of the Word of God!

Culture Shock, LLC is the realized dream of owner Stephanie Taylor.


Stephanie Taylor's desire to create a positive Cultural Experience for all, led to the grand opening of Culture Shock.  Her doors were opened in September 2001 and in December 2003, Culture Shock transitioned to Culture Shock On line.  


Stephanie Taylor has been married since May 1987 and has been blessed with two sons and a daughter.


Growing up as a child in St. Mary's County, Maryland, Stephanie Taylor watched her Mother struggle to raise a family of nine alone. The heartache and abuse her Mother endured by her employers was something that Stephanie Taylor understood and never forgot.  She was determined to have a better life.


Stephanie Taylor spent many years working for others but the dream of being her own boss never left her heart or mind. Her focus was always on a business that would be a perfect match with her bubbly personality and love of people.  Fervent prayer and faith led to the opening of that dream.


Although faced with some weighty obstacles while establishing her business, Stephanie Taylor’s business management skills enabled her to persevere. Her twenty years of finance and procurement experience have been an asset to propel her business forward. She handles her dilemmas like grains of salt due to her strong belief in Jesus Christ.  During difficult times, Stephanie Taylor draws inspiration from the scripture, "I can do all things through Christ which gives me strength". She never gives up.


Stephanie Taylor's strong will coupled with her fierce goal to satisfy her customers will make Culture Shock On line an enjoyable experience.


Stephanie Taylor has an exceptional talent, which enables her to interact with various people groups.  Her diversity skills are evident to anyone who has attended one of the numerous social events she has conducted. 


While Culture Shock on line is Stephanie Taylor's dream realized, she knows it will take hard work and dedication for continued success…  Jesus will see her through!


I can recall her once saying: "I have no fear of the unknown. I am running this ship based on faith alone! Good or bad, God has my back. He’s already gone before me to prepare the way, So why should I worry…why should I fear?”
