Stephanie Gress

Stephanie joined Branch Financial Services, Inc. in 2020. She returned to the financial industry to re-join Harlan’s practice after a 20-year career in the arts as a museum curator and grant writer. Stephanie was Harlan’s first full-time associate in the early days of his financial practice, so this was a joyful homecoming.

Stephanie was not only happy to return to Branch Financial Services, Inc. but to the exciting world of finance. She truly enjoys every aspect of helping our clients and working with Harlan and their team.

Stephanie resides in Nissequogue with her husband Michael. Like Harlan and his wife Olivia, they share an avid interest in the arts and enthusiastic support for the organizations in their community. Stephanie has served on the Board of Gallery North, Inc. in Setauket since 2015, and is presently a member of their Executive Board. She also served on the Planning Board for the Incorporated Village of Head of the Harbor from 2015 through 2021.

Stephanie earned her M.A. at SUNY Stony Brook, and is the author of a local history book, “Eagle’s Nest: The William K. Vanderbilt II Estate” June 2015, Arcadia Press.
