Born near Philadelphia, PA and raised in the Kansas City, Kansas area, Stephanie Melendez has lived in Albuquerque since 1984.
She graduated from Manzano High School and attended a private college to learn court reporting and paralegal studies.
She began her career as a legal assistant for a prominent New Mexico attorney specializing in medical negligence and found a passion working on behalf of people in need.
