With her training across multiple disciplines, Stefanie applies her varied skills and perspectives to bring creativity and excellence to her work. She received her BA in speech and communications from Stern College at Yeshiva University and her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School. She practiced pharmaceutical antitrust litigation at a private law firm in her home state of New York where her routine exposure to scientific and regulatory personnel enticed her pursue a career in policy. Stefanie decided to leave legal practice to get her MPH at Harvard so that she can transition to life sciences and biotechnology policy. In all she does, Stefanie is guided by her most cherished values: fairness, honesty, loyalty, and justice. Outside of work, Stefanie draws her energy from dancing tango, watching moves, listening to music, and having great conversations.
