Meet the Ambassadors

Stephanie Munn

Although I am originally from Maryland, I have spent the last 9 years in North Carolina with the past 5 being in Charlotte, and I could not be more excited to highlight the dynamic women here in the Queen City.

Charlotte is such an amazing city with so much to offer. From the bustle of Uptown, the social scene in South End, the cool vibes of NoDa and Plaza Midwood, and the historical charm of Myers Park – I could goon forever. While I have a huge passion for traveling the world, I have honestly always loved coming back home to Charlotte. I love keeping up with all the new things to do in this city (if that is even possible!), all the places to eat and drink, creative new concepts, and ultimately celebrating entrepreneurship. Asan admitted social butterfly, I thrive on making authentic connections, supporting others, and bringing people together.

Since moving to Charlotte, I have been inspired by the entrepreneurial soul this city has – leading me to change careers and turn to what I am most passionate about: Health & Fitness. By doing so, I have connected to women across so many different industries and backgrounds and have in turn been able to connect them with one another. One of my favorite things about working in the fitness industry is empowering and celebrating strong women: something that directly aligns with the KNOW Tribe and motivated meto become the KNOW Charlotte Ambassador.

I am so honored to be your KNOW Charlotte Ambassador and a part of this celebration and collaboration of unstoppable women here in Charlotte.

Arden McLaughlin

I am a Charlotte native with a serious passion for people. My full-time career as a publicist is centered around bringing stories to life. I love my role as an Ambassador for KNOW Charlotte because it combines all of my favorite things — building community with women who truly love our city and each other. Through my work with KNOW, I get to bring so many new stories to our readers. It’s the perfect combo.
