Marianne Stepansen

Administrative Assistant

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Whatever the task, Marianne Stephansen always strives to make a positive difference in the lives of others. As an Administrative Assistant, Marianne goes beyond being the friendly voice that people hear when they call. In addition to coordinating meetings for financial advisors, she helps clients navigate the resources available to them.

Before joining the team at LightBridge Wealth Management, Marianne built a reputation for being an organized team player with a bright smile in the banking, investment, and service industries. As someone with a great talent for event planning and working ahead, she realizes the value of always following through – and makes it a priority in everything she does. Marianne backs her professional experience up with a degree from the University of Tennessee.

Out of all the roles in her life, Marianne has found being a mother to a daughter with autism to be the most rewarding. She strives to ‘be the change’ through her involvement in Breakthrough Knoxville, which helps autistic young adults overcome challenges to lead purposeful lives. A creative antiquarian in her personal life, Marianne has a knack for repurposing items in new and unconventional ways. Outside of that, her great loves include music, concerts, plays, and (especially) chocolate. When you see Marianne, ask about her trips to Disney – she’s got a story or two!
