Stephanie Franklin – Administrative Assistant

Stephanie is originally from Kansas and moved with her family to the Kansas City area in 2018.  She spent several years as a home maker while her children were small.  She will comfortably share that returning to the workplace is a great adventure, which she is thoroughly enjoying.  At Bushyhead Law, she takes pride in organizing, scheduling, copying, minding the details, and keeping “the trains running on time” so the attorneys can concentrate on serving our clients.
