Stephanie is originally from the Philippines and immigrated to San Francisco with her family when she was nine. She moved to Utah to attend Brigham Young University and loves the family-friendly activities, national parks, and outdoor adventures Utah offers. In her free time, she likes spending time with her family, singing karaoke, and traveling.
From ages nine to twenty-three, Stephanie built a solid long-term relationship with her dentist. Her dentist always made her feel comfortable every time they saw each other. This relationship inspired her to seek a career that would allow her to build strong bonds with patients and their families.
Stephanie’s love for young children led her into pediatrics. She’s passionate about caring for kids’ mental health and maturation and also lives by the philosophy, “a happy parent, a happy child.” Having a daughter, she knows the importance of parental concerns and addressing these concerns.
Stephanie may have a hard time not getting ketchup stains on all her shirts, but she’s really good at hide-and-seek.
