Her Vision Her Legacy
The financial status of women in the United States is rapidly improving. Today, more U.S. women than men are graduating from college, and about one-third of women earn more money than their husbands. The future looks even brighter: It’s estimated that by 2030 women will account for two-thirds of our nation’s wealth.
In her professional career, Stephanie has helped negotiate difficult conversations among family members about how to achieve financial stability, transition wealth, and plan for the unexpected. Since 2017, however, her personal experience has taken on a new dimension. Following the loss of her brother-in-law and mother to cancer within one month, she must now have difficult conversations with her own family about important financial decisions needed to prepare them long term due to a serious diagnosis. Stephanie shares inspiring lessons of financial empowerment to help women manage and grow personal wealth, achieve financial security, and create a legacy for next generations.
