The Inner Coven
Witches Ride of Ocean Springs
Stephanie Pendleton is a wife and a mother of both a human man-child and the 2 cutest poodle pups you ever did see! She is a lover of all of God’s creations and the complexities of their existence, especially those that may go unnoticed by most including butterflies, dragonflies, and ALL things plant! Stephanie could be described as having a hard working, A-type personality but she loves it when her creative alter ego takes over. This occurs when working on projects such as crafting, sewing, or her newest hobby, pottery!
Stephanie is one of the founding members of the Witches Ride of Ocean Springs- an idea pitched to her by someone dear to her heart and also inspired by the love she discovered after bringing home her first fur baby, Oliver. Stephanie feels led and fueled by the words and works of St. Francis of Assisi in regard to animals: “Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission- to be of service to them wherever they require it.”
When she is not teaching workshops at her downtown studio, Wood & Wine Design Co., you are likely to find Haven in the garden, reading a good book, or spending time with her beloved cat Juniper. She is a lover of all things witchy and magical who is more than happy to spend her down time advocating for local animal welfare groups. She is a second year coven member, who enjoys dawning whimsical mushroom costumes, draping herself in black butterflies and glitter. Haven is a life-long resident of Ocean Springs with a certain fondness for downtown and the feral cat colonies residing there.
Diana is a true animal lover at heart! She has 2 dogs and 2 cats and believes no outfit is complete without animal hair! She stops in the road for any kind of wildlife, big or small, and has a deep love for all creatures. She has a love of travel and finding delicious vegan food and restaurants. She absolutely loves fall and winter, not only for their cooler temperatures but also the opportunity to craft and decorate for the holidays! She and her husband own a graphic design company, Odom Creative Services and she is also an Office Manager and Instructor for Wood & Wine Design Co. She is the newest member of the coven, joining in 2023.
