Stephanie is a native of Clermont, Florida and graduate of South Lake High School. After high school, Stephanie attended the University of Florida (Go Gators!) graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. Stephanie then earned her Juris Doctor, Cum Laude, from Roger Williams University of Law where she was a participant in the Honors Program and an assistant editor of the Law Review. Stephanie began her career as a Judicial Staff Attorney in Lake County for the Honorable Don F. Briggs, Honorable Mark A. Nacke, Honorable Michael G. Takac, and Honorable James Baxley. As a staff attorney in both Circuit and County Court, Stephanie developed extensive knowledge and experience in a variety of civil and criminal matters and had the unique opportunity to work closely with the Judiciary from within the court system. Later, Stephanie was hired as an Assistant Public Defender serving under the Honorable Michael Graves, where she defended hundreds of juvenile, misdemeanor, and felony cases. Throughout her career, Stephanie has been involved in a multitude of cases with diverse issues of law and fact including divorce cases, paternity actions, class actions, complex civil litigation matters, injunctions, and all forms of criminal defense, including post-conviction relief and appellate issues.

Stephanie recognizes the importance of giving back to her community and participates in a wide variety of philanthropic pursuits.
