Ipo Kane (pronounced Ēpō) was born in California and attended college in Spokane, Washington at Eastern Washington University where she studied Electronic Media & Filmic Arts and Computer Science. She became acquainted with Stan Stephens Cruises that first summer of 2009, as she was one of the key persons responsible for fueling our boats each night. Ipo quickly became a co-worker and family member her second summer in Valdez when she began to manage our Tour Desk and Reservation Staff, and has since been the Tour Desk Manager. If you book a reservation direct with Stan Stephens Cruises you will more than likely work with Ipo via the phone, email or as you check in prior to boarding.
Anytime you are in Valdez and looking for an activity in the evening and you see that our local band Future Babes is playing, you should attend to see the creative side of Ipo. She is one of the three band members providing instrumental and vocal leads in their success. Often the band will play in local establishments, and at summer festivals like the 4th of July Festival, Valdez Gold Rush Days and RHR the Richardson Highway Rendezvous Music & Art festival.
