Stephanie is a California Licensed Professional Fiduciary, CLPF (license # 708, July 2013) and a Nationally Certified Guardian NCG.
Stephanie brings a wealth of experience to the role of Fiduciary. As an ordained Presbyterian clergy, she spent 23 years caring for people in crisis, and leading non-profit organizations. She has proved trustworthy in stewardship of donor money. She is known for skills in the areas of administration, project management, and conflict negotiation. Caring, insightful, and winsome—Stephanie provides the empathy, clarity, and humor needed to guide any situation.
Her educational training is in the area of religion and psychology. She graduated with a B.A. in Communications & Religious Studies from University of California at Santa Barbara. She finished a Masters of Divinity at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, and a M.S. in Psychology at San Jose State University.
Stephanie brings maturity and life experience needed for a role of great trust. Married for 30 years, her husband, John, is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who has worked in executive roles in Silicon Valley high-tech companies.
Together, they have raised a son and a daughter. Her passion is serving vulnerable people in our society, and this is reflected in her volunteer work the past four years—leading a team to raise money for the Immanuel Refugee House and tutoring refugees in English skills.
