Medicaid Assistance Paralegal
Carole, Stephanie’s mother, is credited with being the “best mom in the world,” because “I love her compassion, kindness, and gentleness. As children, we were loved and we knew that we were loved.” The foundation laid by family prepared Stephanie for a multi-year commitment to provide caregiving to her grandmother, Margaret. Stephanie relates, “I was blessed to care for my grandmother for many years. As she got older, the caregiving sometimes became very overwhelming. I often needed to stop and reflect on my mother’s example just to keep me going. I do feel that there is a rewarding side to caregiving, in that I had the opportunity to have a special relationship with my grandmother, who I loved dearly. I experienced things with her that no one else can ever understand. I will always treasure every moment we shared.”
When she’s not in the office, she enjoys hiking and taking long walks, for the opportunity to see a beautiful sunset or a rainbow. On the other hand, the roar of engines at the NASCAR and American LeMans races really fires her up! But when it comes to traveling, she would rather not fly — which seems a little odd considering the fact that her husband Kevin is a corporate pilot!
