Stephanie Kearneythumbnail

Stephanie Kearney

Pre-Arrangement Counselor

Stephanie is first and foremost an Oregonian.  Although raised in Eugene, her roots are in Portland and she chose to have a family and raise her 5 children in Southeast Portland.  As a mother of five, much of her time was well-spent on supporting her children at various sporting events and extracurricular activities.  Only recently has she been afforded the time to recommit herself to her passion of horseback riding.  Stephanie’s newfound freedom will primarily be focused on working with bereaved survivors having experienced a recent death in the family.  In her spare time, you will find Stephanie training her Quarter horse (Luna) and competing in local stock horse competitions.  In the spirit of the Northwest, Stephanie and her family can also be found hiking, camping and just enjoying the outdoors.

Stephanie is very passionate about helping and protecting the families she serves.
