Meet the Team
Stephanie Lentz | Founder & CEO
Hannah Fankhauser | Executive Assistant
Hannah was born and raised in Washington state and is passionate about everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer. She recently graduated Northwest University with a degree in Interpersonal Communications and a minor in Marketing. What excites Hannah most about her position at Scoop Marketplace is her ability to utilize every aspect of both her degrees while pursuing her life passion of normalizing sustainable living. In her free time, Hannah enjoys spending quality time with her husband (which usually involves thrifting and finishing puzzles) or binge watching Friends for the 500th time.
Claire | Product Educator
Claire is a recent college graduate with a degree in fashion business and a minor in environmental sustainability, who is invested in learning how a societal shift in mindset and values can create a greener and more inclusive future. By working at Scoop Marketplace, Claire gets to partake in helping customers on their low-waste lifestyle journey. When not at work, Claire enjoys watching Studio Ghibli films, plant-based baking, reading, and learning more about the intersection between fashion and holistic sustainability. In the fall, Claire will be attending graduate school to pursue her curiosities and dreams further.
Melissa | Product Educator
Melissa is a Midwest transplant with roots firmly in the Detroit area. Having worked in hospitality and hotels for the last decade, what ultimately inspires her is people. Since 2016 Melissa has lived in Hawaii, California, and has fallen in love with Washington. There’s a common Hawaiian phrase “Aloha ‘aina” which means love of the land but even more- it is a core value of the people. The Bay Area exposed Melissa to her first zero-waste/refill shop, offering her not only a product-educator role but allowing her to transition out of hospitality and into something that felt more ethically aligned. Now finally here in Kirkland, Melissa has been able to lean into the zero-waste space and continue learning with the Scoop Team! Some fun facts: breakfast is her love language, always looking for podcast suggestions, and her best friend is an Australian Cattle Dog named Timber.
Rosemary | Product Educator
Rosemary was raised on a farm in rural NY and is passionate about bringing the low waste country lifestyle into the city. She grew up alongside five different service dogs in training, and trained two more herself with Guiding Eyes for the Blind when she was a teenager. She enjoys color and creativity through using makeup as an art form, and can often be found with brushes in her hands and rainbows on her face. Rosemary believes cats are the superior life form on Planet Earth, and though she had to leave her farm cat Mugs in NY with her family, she pesters her parents for pictures of him almost every day. She doubts that Mugs misses her nearly as much as she misses him, but she still counts the days until she can visit and hug him again.
