Stephanie comes to McKean Smith after working as a legal assistant for a criminal defense firm here in Portland. Before that, Stephanie was a nursing assistant and had her sights set on becoming a physician assistant. She took her passion for helping others and is applying it to the legal field as she aspires to become an attorney. Stephanie has been gaining valuable experience in family law as our document clerk and has recently transitioned into a full-time paralegal. Having all of this experience and wide based knowledge is essential to her ability to service clients at the highest capacity. Her attention to detail, work ethic, and her willingness to jump into anything our team needs makes her a great asset to McKean Smith.
Stephanie hails from the Golden State of California, however, she’s lived here since she was 10 years old! She obtained a degree in paralegal studies from Portland Community College with highest honors and is working on her bachelor’s degree from Portland State University. When Stephanie isn’t at work or at school, you can find her at the Portland Thorns game with her younger sister, cuddling with her cat while watching Netflix, or exploring the Pacific Northwest.
