Our mission is to provide support, strength, and education for families coping with laryngomalacia, tracheomalacia, bronchomalacia, and pharyngomalacia.
Founder and Executive Director
Stephanie founded Coping With LM in 2010 shortly after her daughter had surgery (a supraglottoplasty) to help treat life-threatening laryngomalacia. For the last decade, Stephanie has volunteered her time, passion, and heart for the cause.
In 2017, Stephanie co-wrote the first ever Malacia e-Book with Dr. Prasad Thottam D.O, FAAP and Dr. Suzanne Forman, D.O.
In addition to being a licensed cosmetologist and certified aromatherapist, Stephanie has studied Nonprofit Management at Brookdale Community College and Nonprofit Financial Stewardship at Harvard Kennedy School.
