She attended the University of Central Arkansas at Conway where she obtained a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

She worked for KTAL-TV in Texarkana, TX before joining News Channel 3.

The organization awarded her Best Enterprise for her exclusive story following the plight of a man fighting off a drug addiction.

Stephanie is an adjunct professor at the University of Memphis in the Department of Journalism.

Stephanie serves as a board member for RISE, a charitable organization that helps Memphians achieve financial self-sufficiency. She is also Honorary Chair of 2013 NAACP Membership Campaign.
