Stephanie, a resident of Florida for over 20 years, found her interest in the legal field starting as a receptionist when she realized that she enjoyed the legal field and quickly decided to support her work experience with an education, ultimately pursuing her career as a Paralegal with The Estate Plan to being promoted to her current role as Operations Manager. Stephanie, who is also a member of the Florida Bar as a Registered Paralegal, earned her bachelor's degree in Legal Studies and a minor in Business Management at Florida Gulf Coast University. Her continued education as a Paralegal and manager affords her the ability to stay up to date on the most recent legal information which she utilizes to effectively and efficiently support the founding attorney with the firm's client focused goals and objectives.

With more than a decade of legal experience, Stephanie has developed the skills necessary to assist and focuses on all aspects of training and developing the Probate, Guardianship, and Estate Planning department at The Estate Plan. She is organized, a self-starter, and a quick learner. Clients and professionals have said that she is outstanding at blending professionalism with a warm and approachable demeanor.

When she is not working, Stephanie also volunteers as a Guardian Ad Litem, trained in dependency work for the purpose of providing a voice to children with the goal to reunify them with their families. She truly cares about clients and their families and the success of their cases. She also volunteers at a local horse rescue and an education facility for young disabled adults.

During her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time at the beach and enjoying the Florida weather with her daughter. She loves living in paradise!
