Prior to her legal career Dr. Stephens earned a B.S. in biology from Adelphi University, a doctorate from Stony Brook University, and her J.D. from Fordham University School of Law. In August 2017, Dr. Stephens was listed as one of the Long Island Business News’ Who’s Who in Women in Professional Services.

The Business of Science/Horace McDonnell Lecture Series, a joint program of the Willumstad School of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences, introduces students, primarily in the sciences, to jobs and careers in the business fields. Accomplished practitioners, who studied sciences as undergraduate students and then went on to achieving success in the business side of enterprises, come to campus to share their experiences and offer useful perspectives that broaden student choices and aspirations.
This event is part of Adelphi’s Leadership Certificate Program. However, you do not need to be a part of the Leadership Certificate Program to attend this event.
