Stephanie graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. While at UNC she anchored and covered local crime for Carolina Week, a campus and community news show.
A native of Miami, Florida, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her family, going to the beach and sipping Cuban coffee.
