Aerlume general manager, Stephanie Storvik has deep roots in Seattle and the hospitality industry and lights up when talking about her career and hometown. She loves this place, the people she meets and that things are different each day. She grew up watching her mom waiting tables and got her first job scooping ice cream at 15. She continued working in restaurants while going to school at Washington State University and spent a semester at CUNY Hunter College in Manhattan. Prior to joining the Fire & Vine Hospitality team, Stephanie served as Regional Director of Operations for Heavy Restaurant Group. She currently serves on the board of the Seattle Restaurant Alliance.
Stepping into the GM role at Aerlume is an exciting move for Stephanie. She is a dedicated teacher and mentor and enjoys working to blend a team of people and balance a mix of strength and skills. Close family ties are important to Stephanie. Her father was a second generation longshoreman and loves looking out the windows at Aerlume and thinking of family at the port. In addition to spending time with friends and family, Stephanie loves to write and travel.
Maggie Trujillo grew up and spent most of her life far from the ocean, yet she says it is where she feels most at peace. As a competitive swimmer, she thrives near water so the sweeping views of Elliott Bay make Aerlume the perfect spot for this rising star chef. Maggie earned her Culinary Arts degree from Le Cordon Bleu at the Western Culinary Institute in Portland, OR in 2004 and is a creative, committed leader. She worked for the Portland Hilton Hotel before moving to Ashland, OR and Lela’s, Chateaulin and Caldera Brewing Company. Maggie’s experience working with a true farm-to-table restaurant began in 2014 when she joined Larks Restaurant at the Inn at the Commons in Medford, OR. The position at Aerlume brings Maggie close to the water she loves and presents an opportunity for her to expand her connections with providers by working hand-in-hand with Fire & Vine Hospitality farming partners including Fall City Farms, Sound Sustainable Farms and many more.
