In 2014, Stephanie Alderdice joined the team at Kirby & Co. Two years later, she acquired the firm and renamed the agency SixtyOne Celsius, a lighthearted acknowledgement of Hot Springs’ world-famous thermal waters. SixtyOne Celsius’ portfolio of clients spans travel, hospitality, healthcare, education, economic development, professional services, political campaigns, and non-profit organizations.
Stephanie is committed to improving quality of life, improving economic development, and supporting the missions of a variety of businesses and not-for-profit organizations within Central Arkansas. She holds a Master’s Degree in Communication from Eastern Michigan University, and has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce and one of Arkansas Business’ “40 Under 40.”
An active participant in the Hot Springs community, Stephanie has most recently served on the boards of the Hot Springs Area Community Foundation, the Hot Springs National Park Rotary Club, and the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. She served as a delegate for the Hot Springs Sister City’s 25th Anniversary Delegation to Hanamaki, Japan. She is currently a member of the Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce, Hot Springs Fifty for the Future, the Downtown Association of Hot Springs, and an investor in the Hot Springs Area Metro Partnership.
Her husband, Corey, serves as Director for the Arkansas School for Math, Science, and the Arts and her son, Elliott, attends Lakeside Intermediate School.
