Our Staff

Nancy Hopper

Nancy is the owner of Set the Stage. She has been in the design and rental business since 1984. She launched Set the Stage in 2005 and has watched it grow annually. Realtors and stagers have come to depend on her reliability and dedication. She has an impressive track record of watching sales increase after she has set the stage. She has earned respect for her work in residential, corporate and models design.

She served as the 2013 and 2014 Real Estate Staging Association State President, where she encouraged a cooperative effort among regional stagers in order to enhance and grow the local industry.

Nancy also works closely with ARC – that serves people with intellectual/developmental disabilities – by donating staging items beyond their prime. She is also a volunteer with Women’s Homelessness Initiative that serves the homeless population of Denver.

She is very proud of her family but is eager to point out that the coolest person she has ever known is her youngest sister, who remains nameless and incognito in the Set the Stage world.


Rachael Stoetzel
Although Rachael Stoetzel has an official title, ‘Controller of Chaos’ is really the best way to describe what she does every day at Set the Stage. Rachael has been with STS since 2005. She started out as a part-time warehouse assistant and has grown with the company. She now handles all the day-to-day operational duties of the warehouse. Rachael loves working in the fast paced environment and solving problems is what she does best. When Rachael is not at work, you may find her causing chaos on the track where she plays and coaches roller derby for one of Denver’s flat track roller derby teams.



Mary Libra
Mary Libra came to us from a retail background and it shows in the way she displays the inventory. As the Accessories Peep she has made it her mission to keep the décor area clean, organized, and easy to shop, giving stagers a stress-free experience. She is quick to help and if she doesn’t know an answer she will find someone who does. On her days off she spends time with her family and enjoys hiking in the mountains.


Amoxicillin Stoetzel
Amoxicillin Stoetzel  (Moxie to her intimates) joined the Set the Stage team in 2013. A young go-getter, she swiftly ascended the management ranks and achieved success in the upper echelons. Moxie holds several degrees in Business Management, Calligraphy and studied design under I.M. SharPei. She enjoys long walks, relaxing with friends, and adding to her collection of designer plush toys.  Moxie is one of our most important team members. Moxie takes her responsibility for morale very seriously, always welcoming everyone with a wagging tail.  It is not uncommon for staff to stop in for a brief puppy break during their work day. Clients too enjoy our office dog, often looking to greet Moxie even before they say hello to the rest of the staff!
