I have had a wonderful experience working with Stephanie. From my initial consultation she established herself as an intensely caring person. Stephanie clearly has a wealth of knowledge and experience that she can draw upon to tailor her recommendations to the specific nuances of individuals and families. She really establishes herself as an educator with sincere interests in helping her clients make the best short and long-term decisions. I truly consider Stephanie a friend and an invaluable advocate for my family’s financial security.


Seeing Stephanie speak time and again, it is easy to see the natural gift she has for connecting with her audience. I have seen her speak to rapt audiences, despite the fact that insurance can be a dry topic. She brings it to life, leveraging her astounding vulnerability and the sublimation of her own experiences. From her work to her educational efforts, she helps her fellow physicians in life-changing ways. She is a shining star as a physician advocate.


Stephanie is great, we would recommend her to anyone! We previously knew next to nothing about disability insurance, but Stephanie was very helpful and reassuring. We previously found insurance policies and associated jargon confusing, cumbersome, and frankly annoying. Stephanie broke it down for us, patiently explained verbiage and policy differences, and gave us peace of mind.
