Along with her academics, Stefanie worked as a research assistant for Professor Jenifer Copp, assisting in research that focused on the impact of parental visitation rights on incarcerated parents. Stefanie’s passion for helping individuals also led her to work at Lifeline (a suicide hotline) and United Way, where she here she logged over 250 hours of service as a crisis counselor, helping individuals dealing with severe crisis (including abuse, mental health episodes, houselessness, etc.). Stefanie’s almost rabid desire “to help and to guide” will fit in very well here at CFH. After graduating from FSU, Stefanie attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa William S.
