As Chief of Military Justice at a premier military justice base, Stephanie oversaw the prosecution of numerous criminal trials, demonstrating her prowess in navigating complex legal proceedings while personally handling criminal cases and advising federal law enforcement investigations.

Transitioning to Defense Counsel, Stephanie advocated for hundreds of Air Force members facing legal challenges across the nation.
