Stephanie began her academic career at Washington and Lee Univesity located in Lexington, Virginia, where she was awarded a B.A. in Biology. Her passion for environmental issues and conservation led her to a research and rescue program for manatees in southwestern Florida, then to Sardinia, Italy to investigate dolphins. When she realized the vast need for better communication between those who create public policies and the biologists who conduct their research in the field, Stephanie returned to the U.S. to study at the Florida State University College of Law, to focus on your nationally recognized project on Environmental Law and Land Use.
She graduated from FSU Law in 2012 with her Juris Doctor degree and certificate in Environmental Law and Land Utilization, then began working as a staff attorney for the House of Representatives of the State of Florida. After several years working for the Florida state government analyzing proposed legislation projects, working with elected officials, lobbyists and local governments, Stephanie decided to join the private practice. Having done research projects for the Cobb Law Group during Law School, Stephanie moved to Georgia, where she joined the full-time law firm in 2015. She is admitted to practice law in both Georgia and Florida.
