Stephanie J. Bond is a SURVIVOR. After experiencing personal heartbreak of unfathomable proportions, she has dedicated her life to helping others TRANSCEND through their own personal TRAGEDY. Stephanie’s husband struggled with mental illness throughout the last several years of their marriage. As his illness escalated, violence and abuse gradually crept into their home; and in 2010, her marriage ended with an attempted murder – suicide.
Stephanie fought to recover from three nearly fatal gunshot wounds only to discover that she was left with $25MM of debt, a bankrupt estate and virtually no financial resources with which to raise her four children. In 2012, she moved her family to Dallas, TX. Through sheer hard work, fierce determination and unrelenting perseverance, Stephanie successfully created a new life for her family and rebuilt her career as an accounting and finance executive in Corporate America.
Always passionate about PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, she is a CPA who at the age of 50 completed her Master's degree. Today she is FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT and helps others achieve their personal, professional and financial goals.
Because of her horrific experience, Stephanie has unparalleled insight to the problems we as a society face with respect to gun control. Stephanie was a victim of numerous loopholes in the legal system and is outraged by the lack of enforcement of existing laws. She therefore has a unique perspective on how we can address our societal problem of GUN VIOLENCE.
As the mother of 4 bi-racial children, she understands the complexities of raising a family with multi-cultural values. She believes in the power of kitchen table conversations when it comes to having an honest and open dialogue about DIVERSITY and INCLUSION. She understands what it feels like to be MARGINALIZED and is an advocate for those that are undervalued and underappreciated.
In December, 2022 Stephanie was diagnosed with BREAST CANCER and elected to have a life saving double mastectomy.
Stephanie refuses to be typecast as a victim. She shuns political correctness and speaks with raw TRANSPARENCY and AUTHENTICITY using her story of SURVIVAL to help others who are trying their best to manage the hardships that life brings.
She exemplifies RESILIENCE, believes in the power of FAITH and understands the importance of COMMUNITY . . . especially during times of unimaginable heartbreak.
In spite of it all, Stephanie is THRIVING and is PASSIONATE about helping others
LIVE THEIR BEST LIFE!
