As a special guest of the United States Embassy, Stephanie’s appearances during Capital Pride garnered quite a bit of coverage by the local Ottawa media outlets. Of particular note was her Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) appearance with host Amanda Pfeffer on the show “Ottawa Morning.”
She spoke with Amanda about her workplace transition story, as well as what it was like coming out to her son and to her family – all of which played a critical role in the timing and the pace of her transition. They are important considerations to keep prominently in mind for both transgender individuals and their employers.
