Stephanie began her education at York University where she graduated with an Honours Double Bachelor Degree in History and Political Science in 2016.
She then went on to the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law at Lakehead University where she graduated with her Juris Doctor degree in 2019, and called to the Ontario Bar in the same year.
At the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law she received a unique education into Indigenous law, and had the opportunity to travel to Halifax to attend the Indigenous Bar Association Conference. During her law school career she was president of the on-campus initiative: Reading on the Res, which partnered with local organizations and fly-in indigenous communities to provide libraries and books to remote Anishinabek and Inuit reserves. She was also a peer mentor and involved actively in off campus initiatives such as Lawyers feed the Hungry.
She has experience practicing in both the Ontario Court of Justice, as well as the Superior Court of Justice, and has done work for the Divisional Court as well as Small Claims Court. She has worked previously for a boutique family law firm in Thunder Bay which specializes in family law, and completed a summer work placement at Legal Aid Ontario specializing in Access to Justice for both criminal and family matters.
Stephanie was born and raised in the Durham Region and when not working she enjoys hiking with her dogs, exercising, and backpacking to exotic locations.
