Stephanie is excited to join the Channel 7 team as KATV’s general assignment reporter!

She began her career at KOSA-TV in Midland-Odessa, Texas. There, she reported on tornadoes, city corruption, numerous police stand-offs, homicides and murders, and broke the disappearance of Sul Ross State University student Zuzu Verk - a story that gained national attention.

Stephanie first got a taste for TV news at New Mexico State University, where she anchored and reported for News 22 - a student-run live broadcast. During that time, she interned at KVIA-TV in El Paso, Texas. It was her internship that validated her love of breaking news and spot news reporting.

Though Stephanie has spent the past decade of her life in New Mexico and loves the desert, she is thrilled to be in Little Rock and can’t wait to explore the beautiful nature Arkansas has to offer.

In her off time, Stephanie enjoys Electronic Dance Music and attending music festivals throughout the Southwest.

Stephanie loves all furry, four-footed friends! She has a German Shepherd mix named Lacey, who lives in New Mexico with Mom and Dad.
