Dynamic Duo

When baby makes four, things get busy, says Ashley Schweickart ’07.

A little baby making a big entrance, Quinn was welcomed into the world earlier this year by his parents Ashley Schweickart ’07 and Kyle Stephenson ’07 and a first-time older sister, Indiana. 

And while Ashley and Kyle aren’t first-time parents, having a second child is a new challenge in itself. “Everything is different the second time around!” Ashley says. Handling a newborn on its own is hard enough, and this time, we have to care for an energetic and emotional toddler too.” 

But some of the work is familiar. 

“Thankfully, we’ve already been through having a newborn, so it isn’t as scary and unknown. We feel more confident in our abilities as parents.” Ashley says.

On top of the value of family, Ashley and Kyle want to instill into their kids the values from their time at SCU. “Part of SCU’s mission is a commitment to leaving the world a better place and we try to live those ideals every day,” Ashley says. 

By raising the next generation of leaders, the couple is well on their way to reaching that goal.
