While you may not have "met" Stephanie until September of 2013, she actually joined the NewsChannel 5 team back in August of 2011. Stephanie came to KSDK to produce the news, and was able to gain some valuable experience. But after two years, she decided to return to what first led her to a passion for the news, which is reporting.

Stephanie moved to St. Louis from Wichita, Kansas, where she worked as a reporter and anchor. While working for KAKE, she was among the first reporters to arrive in Joplin after the deadly 2011 tornado. That tragedy hit close to home for Stephanie, who also worked for KSNF in Joplin as a reporter and anchor. Before that, Stephanie worked for KOMU while attending the University of Missouri where she graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

Stephanie is happy to call Webster Groves home, where she lives with her husband. She also loves visiting her parents and brother in Wichita, and her sister in Hermosa Beach, California.
