Professional Biography

Stefanie's clients seek her counsel regarding a wide variety of regulatory and compliance matters that are integral to their efforts to operate and grow effectively. She counsels long term care and other clients nationwide in matters involving federal and state regulations; licensing, survey, and certification; regulatory compliance; and nondiscrimination and equity. She also enables her clients to grow by guiding them through the processes of obtaining certificates of need and regulatory approvals for expansion and establishing new facilities.

Stefanie is experienced in assisting her clients in navigating the complexities of all aspects of state and federal surveys. She guides clients, large and small, in their efforts to comply with the myriad of regulations that govern long term care, conducts comprehensive compliance plan effectiveness reviews to identify opportunities for improvement, and guides them in their responses to enforcement agencies. Stefanie also supports health care clients to ensure that they are not engaging in discriminatory practices. She meets health care clients where they are operationally and aids them in developing appropriate nondiscrimination policies and procedures so that they can ultimately achieve compliance with state and federal nondiscrimination laws and regulations. Her in-depth understanding of the federal rulemaking process benefits her clients by guiding them as they seek to understand, comply with, and influence regulations.

Stefanie began her legal career as a law clerk for the Honorable Brian A. Jackson, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana. While attending American University's Washington School of Law, she also served as a judicial intern for both the Honorable Richard W. Roberts, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and the Honorable Gerald Bruce Lee of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Prior to beginning her legal career, Stefanie held several positions in health policy and advocacy, including Director of Government Relations at the District of Columbia Hospital Association and Health Policy Analyst for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She also earned a master's degree in Public Health from Tulane University’s School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine.
