Stephanie is the Executive Director of The Rose Bud Transitional Home Inc and a survivor of domestic violence. As a young adult, she endured physical, emotional and verbal abuse for six years that almost took her life. She finally had the mindset and courage to leave to start a healing and restoration process.
Stephanie realized that so many women endure the same acts of violence with no help. She decided to continue her education, strengthen her financial situation, return to her spiritual upbringing in order to one day be able to assist others.
Stephanie worked for a transitional home in Atlanta for two years. Stephanie has a Master’s Degree in Human Services and a Master’s Degree in Business Management. She now serves in her community through volunteering with the American Cancer Society and serves as President of her Homeowners Association.
Stephanie believes that with the love and support from family and friends is how she became an overcomer of her past. Now, she hopes to provide the same encouragement and support for other women; so, they can become overcomers as well. Stephanie strongly believes that raising the awareness of domestic violence and helping the victims of domestic violence more efficiently can strengthen families and the community.
