About Stephanie

I have purposefully built my career around what is best for students. For me, it’s personal. I strive to create a positive and trusting relationship with every student I serve. I have been fortunate enough to work with students from Kindergarten through Community College. My strength is connecting with kids; especially grades 9-12, specializing in College, Career and Comprehensive Guidance Counseling. My commitment to being a life long learner translates into a creative problem solving approach with students, which leads to their discovery and ownership of the unique qualities and talents they have to offer their future university and community.

Stephanie played a significant role in me attending Stanford University and having the best college experience possible. Her constant encouragement throughout high school and the college application process gave me the confidence I needed to take advantage of the amazing experience that was my undergraduate career. I will be forever grateful for her motivating me to believe in myself as much as she did.
