Stephanie received her Bachelors of Arts from Bentley College in Waltham, MA. Before joining Chaffin Luhana LLP she was an Editor at CB Richard Ellis’ Econometric Advisors in Boston, MA. Stephanie’s primary role is to assist with the management of the firm’s growing offices, in New York and West Virginia. She also provides support for key litigations for the firm and regularly communicates with firm clients in these cases, including the Denture Cream, Orthopedic Implant Devices, and birth control litigations. Stephanie lives in New York City with her charismatic poodle, Chewie.
Stephanie’s 2014 Chaffin Luhana Foundation Charity donation was to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. When Stephanie’s grandmother was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s she would often talk about how it made her feel more normal knowing that a celebrity was coping with the same disease but still living a full and engaging life. Stephanie said the Foundation continues to work to find methods to slow the acceleration of the disease and create better therapies.
For 2015, Stephanie chose A Better Chance for her donation. A dear friend of Stephanie’s was a recipient of the College Preparatory School’s Program from A Better Chance and she saw first hand how the program can completely change people’s lives.
For 2017, Stephanie nominated D.A.R.E. New Hampshire. Stephanie’s home state of New Hampshire is facing an opioid epidemic. Stephanie’s contribution to D.A.R.E. will help teach young people the risk of engaging in drug use by educating them on the dangerous and sometimes deadly consequences.
