Stephanie Lindner – Groups Operations
Originally from Excelsior Springs, MO, moved to the area in 2003 after graduating high school to attend college at Missouri State University. I decided to make Branson my home after meeting my now husband, we have been married 10 years and now have two boys, Grant and Bennett. I have been with Branson.com for 7 years and have worked in different positions within the company, but have found my home with our Groups Department. In my free time I enjoy just spending time with my family. We love to go to the parks, walk the trails at the lake and visit many of the Branson attractions.
Fun Fact: I have a very real fear of Frogs.

Shawna Tasker – Group Sales Coordinator
Shawna was born and raised in the Kansas City, Missouri Area- North of the River as the locals call it. The love of the Branson area started as a child with stories from her Grandfather about his numerous fishing trips to the area. Her first trip to Branson was at the age of 2 when her parents took her to Silver Dollar City. She took a nap in line at the log ride and woke up just before the big splash at the end of the ride- thereafter she knew Branson was the place to be if looking for an adventure.
Fun Fact: That first trip to Branson, her family stayed at The Travelers Motel. The resort was owned by her (now) co-worker Renee Youngblood’s parents.
