Little Rock native Kelly Fraiser has been a part of At Home in Arkansas since 1996, when she was hired as an account executive. After spending a year as associate publisher, she was promoted to publisher in April 2004. In 2013, she and her husband, David, founded Root Publishing—a nod to the magazine’s local roots—and have proudly owned the company that produces At Home in Arkansas and Weddings in Arkansas ever since. Along with their sons, Parker and Garrett, Kelly and David enjoy making the most of Arkansas’s natural beauty through fishing trips and weekends spent at Lake Ouachita.
Stephanie Maxwell Newton
Stephanie was thrilled for the opportunity to combine her passions for design, storytelling, and her home state when she joined the At Home in Arkansas team as editor in 2017. After graduating from college in Mississippi and graduate school in London, Stephanie moved back to Little Rock to begin a career in writing and editing that has spanned industries—but her favorite subjects have always been local creatives. When not on a deadline, you can find her flipping through a growing stack of magazines, poking around flea markets and estate sales, and enjoying her screened-in porch in Hillcrest with her husband, Patrick.
After honing her writing skills with Southern Progress Corporation in Birmingham as well as working with a local agency, Tiffany joined the At Home in Arkansas team in 2012. She enjoys scouting homes and brainstorming issue themes, along with writing an abundance of copy for each issue. Originally from tiny Keo, Arkansas, she now lives in west Little Rock with her husband, Ben, and daughter, Martha Ann. In her spare time, you can find her fishing at their farm, baking with their daughter, and hunting for antiques and oddities. She describes her style as fresh Southern with lots of rich wood antiques, decorative pottery and glassware, and plenty of patterns.
Before joining At Home in Arkansas in 2021, Steph spent the previous decade building a wedding photography business that took her everywhere from her home base in Northwest Arkansas to locales like Denver and New York. The desire for more time with family motivated her to hang up her wedding-photographer hat and get back to her roots as a designer. As art director for At Home, Steph draws on her broad experience in graphic design, branding, printing, styling, and photo direction for clients large and small, all while leaning into her passion for interior design. Originally from Ohio and Michigan, Steph enjoys the warmer temps of the South from her home in Springdale with her husband, Mike, kids, Greyson and Ava, and pups, Lucy and Abby.
As the daughter of a homebuilder, Isabella is no stranger to the design industry. She has always loved seeing a new home or remodel take shape from start to finish, and now she gets to be a part of the process in a different way—by helping local businesses market themselves to At Home readers. Along the way, she’s enjoyed seeing how so many industry professionals work together when building something incredible. While she loves to travel and explore new places both near and far, Isabella’s also a self-proclaimed homebody; she loves spending time cozying up at her house, which she describes as “traditional and practical with pops of color.”
Mary Kathryn Brengard
When Becca first worked with At Home in Arkansas in 2001, she served as production manager for the magazine and seven other titles. Later, she switched gears while raising her two children (Maddie, 14, and Charlie, 10), and sold real estate and taught preschool for more than a decade. She’s excited to be back with the At Home team helping keep client communication, billing, and distribution organized. Off the clock, you can find Becca cheering on Maddie and Charlie at the soccer fields, playing tennis, volunteering, and spending time with family and friends.
Graphic Designer & Ad Coordinator
Originally from Hughes Springs, Texas, Taylor moved to Arkansas to attend Harding University in Searcy. After graduating with a degree in graphic design, she started taking on freelance clients, which is how she eventually came to work as the ad designer and coordinator for all At Home in Arkansas’s clients. Now living in Fort Smith with her fiancé, Mike, Taylor loves to travel, play sand volleyball, hike, camp, and enjoy the adventure of life.
Social Media Manager
Laura is another longtime member of the At Home in Arkansas family. After joining in 2006 as ad coordinator then working as a senior graphic designer, assistant art director, and special projects editor, she took some time off to focus on raising her two little boys. In 2020, the El Dorado native rejoined the team as social media manager; since then, she’s helped grow and engage the followings of both At Home and Weddings in Arkansas on Facebook and Instagram. Laura and her husband, Jason, love being outdoors with their boys, whether it’s watching them play outside their Little Rock home or taking their camper out for adventures throughout Arkansas.
