Overview

Stephanie assists with the drafting of estate planning documents, manages new estate administration and guides clients through the estate planning process.

Stephanie first joined the firm more than 15 years ago as a runner and quickly saw the opportunities Husch Blackwell, and the legal industry as a whole, offered to learn and to build a career. After she joined the private wealth team as an assistant, attorneys encouraged Stephanie to pursue the paralegal role where she currently serves.

Today, Stephanie drafts legal instruments including last wills and testaments, revocable and irrevocable trust agreements, and assignment and transfer documents. She also helps manage new estate administrations and handles trust accounting in instances where attorneys are serving as trustees. She’s known as a go-getter who is willing to help wherever and whenever and who jumps on any task that needs done.

However, Stephanie’s most important role is simply to support clients. She loves working in such a relationship-driven practice area, and she understands what a deeply personal matter estate planning is. Stephanie is known for her ability to handle sensitive matters and to relate to private wealth clients with sympathy and empathy. Her aim is always to build personal relationships with clients and earn their full trust.
