Stephanie, a Philly native, is a loving wife of 25 years to her husband, M. Bart, and also proud mama to her 16 year old son, Harrison. She enjoys traveling with her family to Florida and most recently Quebec City. When she is not working, she loves to read and bike ride. Stephanie is a compassionate, empathetic and inclusive person who is quite the problem solver. These are wonderful characteristics to have as a social worker.

For 25 years, Stephanie has continued to be dedicated to the field of oncology social work. It is her job to provide supportive counseling, education and resources to families and children, specifically those undergoing bone marrow/stem cell transplant. Stephanie loves meeting and connecting with each family. Her job can be tough so it has taught her to not sweat the small stuff and be grateful for what you have.

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child” –Forest E. Witcraft
