H.O.P.E. Honoree 2023
Luxe Loft by Mathews Aesthetics was founded in 2019 and is owned by Zack and Stephanie Mathews. This dynamic duo has been happily married since 2012. They are devoted to one another as well as the people in their community. Stephanie obtained a bachelor’s in biology/chemistry from Youngstown State University in 2008 then started working as a surgical technician at UH Portage. She decided to go back to nursing school and graduated with her bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2014, also from YSU. She started working as a labor and delivery nurse at various facilities in the Mahoning Valley, later enrolling at Kent State University where she obtained her MA degree in Women’s Health. She then obtained her nurse practitioner degree in 2017.
Stephanie started working for two area OBGYN’s and quickly became certified in Botox and Filler, falling in love with the industry. She realized this was just another avenue for serving the people in her community, especially women. She continues to take every advanced injectable course available. Luxe Loft is not just a small business, this is a dream made possible by the love and dedication between this couple. Stephanie found that this business afforded her and her husband the ability to reach the needs of the community. She picks local families in need, children with disabilities or rare diseases and those that have suffered tragedies. She works with other local organizations that enrich our community such as Broadway Recovery, which battles the growing epidemic of addiction. As the business has grown, so has the impact with this couple. Zack and Stephanie cherish being parents to their baby boy, Lincoln. She also loves being an aunt to her nieces and nephews and enjoys traveling the world while hiking with her husband in her free time.
