Research Assistant II
child welfare, tribal child welfare
During her time as an undergraduate student, Stephanie discovered that she gravitated toward research – she conducted her own linguistics and psychology studies and was also a member of a cognitive psychology lab on campus. Her love for research grew even more while she was completing her honors thesis in psychology. Through her thesis work, she discovered her love for designing studies, conducting research, analyzing data, sharing research findings, and especially connecting with study participants. Stephanie is passionate about the health and well-being of all children. She volunteers at two child- and youth-centered organizations that aim to improve young people's access to support and care. At Butler, Stephanie works on child welfare and tribal child welfare projects, supporting the evaluation team's efforts. Outside of work, Stephanie loves hanging out with her family and friends, spending time outside in the sun, or curling up to read a book.
