New FANS Board member Angela Stone has recently moved back to her hometown area after 25 years near the Outer Banks of NC. Angela grew up as a member of the Shope clan in Riceville, and went through the Swannanoa schools, graduating from Owen High School. She is a US Navy Veteran and holds an MBA in International Business from Saint Leo University. Angela has been a real estate broker for 18 years.
Currently living in lower Beacon Village, Angela is deeply invested in seeing Swannanoa grow in a way that honors local history, and that balances a respect for the families who have built the area for generations, along with the wonderful new additions who move to the area for its beauty and opportunities.
