"I typically get up between 4:30-5am," says Stephanie. "I like to get a good workout in. Then, it's time to wrestle my 3 year old and get her ready for school and get out the door on time. Then, after I drop her off, I do a full day at work."
Stephanie showed us around her day job as a communications specialist at the Cracker Barrel headquarters in Lebanon.
"It's a great job, and I love it," says Stephanie. "Every day is different and equally as challenging."
Also challenging: managing her time. Some nights after work, she has cheer leading practice until 10pm, and on weekend game days she arrives at the field by 8am.
"We go in for hair and makeup," says Stephanie. "We have pregame and then we are there until the game ends."
This is Stephanie's 5th season cheering and her 2nd as Captain. This wife, mother and working professional is dedicated to the Titans and the Nashville community.
"I feel so blessed and so fortunate to be able to do all of this," says Stephanie.
She says she relies on organization and a good support system to make the intense schedule work. You can see more in our pregame special CLASH ON THE CUMBERLAND, ONLY ON FOX this Thursday night. It starts at 6:30pm and is chock full of everything you need to know to get ready for the game. You can also check us out LIVE at the Wildhorse downtown.

101st Combat Aviation Brigade Commander Col. Paul Bontrager said the Afghans need to be weaned off American aviation during the drawdown of U.S. forces this year.
The ability of Afghan helicopters to quickly drop soldiers into combat is a new and critical role.
