First and most important, she is a mother of two and a Mimi to four grandchildren.
Stephanie graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Physical Therapy (PT). She has worked in outpatient/inpatient environments and as a school therapist. She has been a Pediatric PT for over 20 years. She also works with local Cancer patients. Stephanie specializes in neurological disorders with a focus on Movement Disorders and Spasticity management. Fascinated and perplexed with the growing numbers of children and adults with multiple seizure disorders, she found there was a lack of education and treatment options offered to these families. The majority of the families she worked with were bombarded with a multitude of pharmacological medications usually layered together resulting in devastating side effects. There were rarely any alternative options brought up or any educational information offered to empower these families to confidently choose what would work best for their families needs. Every family has unique needs and their spiritual, financial and schedule needs need to be addressed realistically for a successful plan of care.
Then she met Anneliese Clark and her daughter, Christina. She watched Christina rally and blossom, making progress and feeling well – as well as devastatingly decline and losing all bodily functions in ongoing cycles for over 12 years. The two became friends, advocates, and partners in trying to help families by providing insight and understanding of the many other options and alternatives for treatment.
A mother of four, Anneliese graduated with a BS in marketing and communications and worked in sales and promotions for the food and beverage industry prior to opening and operating her own insurance business for the last 20 years. She was listed in the Jacksonville Business Journal’s “Top 25” for Independent Insurance Agencies (Colonial Life) and women-owned business categories multiple times. She was the first woman in the Company history to win the prestigious Premier Office of the Year award. After being distinguished and awarded membership in five President’s Clubs, she received Colonial’s highest award, the Circle of Honor.
Her youngest child Christina was born normal and began to have seizures at three months old. After a barrage of tests, she was diagnosed with cryptogenic, generalized epilepsy and put on her first series of medications. For more than 12 years, she researched relief for Christina who had tried 16 different anti-epileptic drugs, a Vagal Nerve Stimulator, Ketogenic diet (three times), GF/CF diet, stem cell transplants in three different countries, and three brain surgeries. Thousands of seizures, hundreds of medicine side effects and multiple surgeries, have left her mentally and physically disabled.
Christina tried medical grade cannabis oil in January 2014, which resulted in a 90% reduction in seizures during which she made huge developmental gains during this trial period. Due to Florida’s restrictive laws as well as Federal roadblocks, appropriate medical grade cannabis options were not readily available to her. Christina’s condition deteriorated without adequate access to the very medicine that made her better and improved her quality of life.
Anneliese became an avid spokesperson and advocate for medical cannabis as a treatment option in Florida. She has spent endless hours studying cannabis as medicine and is active in several focus groups, collaborating with industry people and patients nationwide. She has traveled around the country and met with growers, researchers and industry professionals. She has testified in front of the Florida Senate and attended many of the DOH hearings regarding current legislation. Anneliese speaks to doctors, parents, law enforcement officers, legislators, and business people to educate and bring awareness to this topic. She has become a “go to” person for Cannabis solutions for children and adults.
