Stephanie was born and raised in Maryland. She earned both her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with minors in Philosophy and Spanish (2005), and her Master’s degree in Psychology (2007) from The Catholic University of America. Stephanie joined The Stixrud Group in 2008 as a Licensed Psychology Associate, and also pursued training as a Stixrud Tutor and a CogMed coach. She then added Client Care Manager to her many roles, helping clients and parents explain their concerns, matching them with a psychologist, and arranging their evaluation. When the position of Office Manager opened up, it was only natural for Stephanie to move into that role, which allows her to use her clinical and organizational skills on a daily basis.
As The Stixrud Group’s Office Manager, Stephanie runs the front office, and she often is the first person a client encounters when they call the practice. She explains the ins-and-outs of the practice and helps them make their first few decisions in what can be an emotional and complex process. She then schedules intake phone calls or consultations. She also helps clients navigate the process of seeking reimbursement from their insurance. Stephanie speaks Spanish fluently, and facilitates communication with Spanish-speaking families.
In her down time, Stephanie spends time with her husband, children, and adorable dog. She also volunteers in her neighborhood, at her children’s school, and, since 2018, as a Girl Scout leader.
