Congratulations, Stephanie, on your two-year anniversary with Negretti & Associates! You are an outstanding member of our team, and we couldn’t do it without you! We are honored to highlight you in the employee spotlight.
Meet Stephanie Kilner!
Where are you from?
I was born in Tucson and my family moved up to Chandler in 1993.
What do you like doing for fun?
The kiddos keep us busy with all of their sport activities. So on the weekends we are usually attending a flag football or soccer game. My daughter has recently shown an interest in cooking so we have signed her up to begin a cooking class this month! When I finally find some down time I enjoy reading, usually a murder mystery.
What has been your favorite memory working with Negretti & Associates?
I don’t necessarily have a single favorite memory. I have enjoyed watching the firm grow and the direction it is going. I have never looked at Negretti & Associates as a “job,” to me it’s more like a second family where we all work together to better each other and to take care of the clients who are relying on us to help them through a difficult time in their life.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishment would be graduating from college. In the beginning I was a stay at home mom going to college pursuing a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. When I decided to file for divorce, I needed to switch career paths quickly in order to take care of my children. I always had an interest in the legal field, and after meeting the attorney (and his paralegal) who helped me through my divorce, I decided that was what I wanted to do. So I worked full time as a receptionist at a law firm and continued being a full time student taking online college courses pursuing an Associates in Paralegal Studies at night.
How would you describe yourself in one sentence or less?
(This is probably the hardest question you could of asked me!) I would describe myself as determined, hard-working, loyal and sarcastic.
