About Me

Hi! I’m Stephanie, or Steph. I’m a lawyer and writer.

I live in Colorado with my husband, kids, father-in-law, and pets.

I work at a small firm in Elizabeth, Colorado, and primarily practice in the areas of contract formation and dispute, construction defect, and family law. Since I have prior experience drafting wills and trusts in other states, I hope to add that to my practice here. For more information about the firm and practice, visit Todd Collins & Associates, LLC.

I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult and, in typical ADHD fashion, I have a lot of interests. I used to be a teacher, an accountability coach, a goat farmer, and a foster mom.

I’ve maintained this blog and website, albeit infrequently at times, since 2008. I mainly write about writing, teaching, raising children, accountability, and my faith, with a healthy dose of pop culture for the fun of it. In 2017, I published a book on keeping your focus on God while raising kids called How to Be a Good Mom (Or at Least Not an Epic Failure).

I hope you’ll find something on these pages that resonates with you and that you’ll share with me when you do. Thanks for reading.
