< Our Team


Stefanie joined the Brooks & Associates Public Relations team as a contract Account Executive in September 2011. Her key roles are leading strategic communications plans and Hispanic market efforts for her clients. With Corporate Communications as the foundation of Stefanie’s career, she draws on her near-decade of various experiences and successes to develop strategic PR/Communications solutions for Brooks & Associates’ clients.

Most of her industry experience has been in national non-profit, automotive, oil and gas, and the Hispanic market. She’s launched a national, bilingual media campaign for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, managed all aspects of internal communications for 1,000+ employees at Nissan North America, and was responsible for Internal Communications at Encana Oil and Gas, USA during a company split and several change management situations. In addition to her main responsibility of Internal Communications in all of her roles, she also led Branding, Executive Coaching, Community Relations, Media Relations, Diversity, and Speech Writing efforts, respectively.

Stefanie holds several professional organization memberships including International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), and Young Catholic Professionals (YCP).

When Stefanie is not drafting strategic communications plan, or having coffee with a client, she enjoys cheering on her beloved Dallas sports teams, kicking back to Texas Country music, and hosting game night with friends where everyone knows how much she loves to win! A native of Stephenville, Texas, Stefanie is a self-described “small-town girl living in the big city.”

She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communications at Tarleton State University.
