Stephanie Stapleton — Associate Consultant

While Stephanie enjoys traveling abroad, she also loves the beauty of the US, especially the mountains.  Having lived in Connecticut, Nashville, New Orleans, DC and NYC, Stephanie appreciates the differences among the people and culture of America’s diverse regions.

As part of the CBC team, Stephanie works with both college and law school applicants.  As the parent of two college students and one high school senior, she understands that essay writing is a process and requires digging deep.  Stephanie enjoys helping students frame their unique story with structure and clarity, so that even the weary admissions reader is captivated.

Stephanie earned her BA in English from Vanderbilt University and relished a short stint studying theatre in London.  She then earned her JD, attending Tulane Law School where she was on Law Review, and finishing at Northwestern Law School.  In private practice at Sidley & Austin in Chicago, Stephanie valued collaboration with colleagues and clients, and the analytical process involved in legal writing.

Stephanie lives in Clarendon Hills and has held volunteer positions in various community organizations.  She takes pleasure in reading, music, and spending time with friends and family, which often involves hockey games, golf, paddle tennis, and other outdoor activities
