Stephanie Iken grew up in a military family, with her mother, father, brother, uncles, and grandfather all proudly serving in the US Air Force. The values of integrity, service, and excellence were woven into the fabric of her upbringing. However, Stephanie experienced adversity early on. At a young age, she was the victim of childhood sexual assault by a wealthy man in a position of trust. Then in 2005, Hurricane Katrina destroyed Stephanie’s family home in Biloxi, MS, forcing them to move to Colorado. These experiences shaped Stephanie into a compassionate and empathetic advocate for victims’ rights.

During Stephanie’s high school years, she maintained consistently strong academic performance. Stephanie also participated in Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), where she developed leadership skills and a strong sense of discipline. Stephanie Iken graduated as second in her class in 2011. Stephanie then carried that drive into higher education, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Colorado, with honors, cum laude. In school, Stephanie learned to approach every challenge with empathy, understanding, and thoughtfulness. In her professional career, Stephanie applies these lessons to navigate all complexities with compassion.
