Stephanie graduated first in her class from Lewis & Clark Law School, where she was an Associate Editor of Environmental Law. While a law student, Stephanie worked as a summer associate at Tonkon Torp and as a law clerk with the U.S. Department of Justice, Environmental Enforcement Section, in Washington, D.C. Prior to joining Tonkon Torp, she served as a judicial law clerk at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
Prior to her law career, Stephanie worked for several years in the environmental industry — both at an environmental consulting firm and at a conservation nonprofit, where she served as the Executive Director.
Outside of work, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and dog, supporting the Portland Timbers, and trying to master her mom’s Korean comfort food recipes. She serves on the board of Girls Build, a nonprofit inspiring curiosity and confidence in girls and women through programming focused on construction skills.
Get To Know
The Ramos Project
In April 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down non-unanimous jury convictions in criminal cases in Ramos v. Louisiana. A shameful carryover from the Jim Crow era, Louisiana and Oregon were the last two states that allowed non-unanimous criminal convictions when as many as two jurors believed a defendant was innocent. Overnight, more than 260 cases in Oregon became eligible to seek post-conviction relief for unconstitutional non-unanimous convictions. Housed in the Criminal Justice Reform Clinic (CJRC) at Lewis & Clark Law School, the Ramos Project is a statewide pro-bono initiative providing legal assistance to those seeking redress.
