She then  went on to earn her Bachelors degrees in Social Work and Communication from Cleveland State University (CSU)  where she earned a full scholarship to play basketball. While at CSU, she helped the program to two Horizon League Championships and two trips to the NCAA tournament. Stephaine went on and earned a Masters Degree in Education from UW – Stevens Point.

At a young age, Stephaine's favorite movie was "Lean on Me." A movie she would watch over and over again of a man who's tough-love antics provided hope to the hopeless and love to those who felt undeserving. One thing that always stuck with Stephaine was his message: "If you do not succeed in life, do not blame your backgrounds, do not blame the establishments, blame yourself!"

Despite all odds placed against her, Stephaine has been determined ever since to find her purpose and to fulfill it without making any excuses. In her efforts, Stephaine has devoted countless hours designing lectures and workshops to continuously help make those around her better.

Stephaine is passionate about improving the well-being of people, more specifically women through dialogue, reflection and affirmation. She believes the power in every woman not only knowing her potential, but believing in her potential and working on it. If women become better: the families become existent and the communities become stronger.

Stephaine is the Author of "With Love" a self-reflective, interactive book that forces readers to bring to life, situations and issues that are resting in their unconscious mind that may be preventing them from being the best person they can be. Owning your own truths is critical in the progression stage of life.

Stephaine is the founder of Real Talk, which rest under the WOMEN (Widening Opportunities to Motivate, Empower and Network) Movement Brand.  In its second year, Real talk has reached thousands of young Millennials, addressing long-standing issues that once confronted, expose lasting truths.

Stephaine is available for one on one mini Real Talk coaching sessions, event hosting and motivational speaking.
