Stephanie Utzman is a dedicated mother and advocate. She became an advocate the day her son Adler was born. At 32 weeks gestation, he had special medical needs that continue to this day. Through her experiences of advocating for access to augmentative communication for her son, she founded Adler’s Voice.
With over two decades of management experience in both the legal and real estate fields, her professional career and educational background have prepared her for the path she has chosen to pursue. Stephanie is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Assistive Technology and is eager to help other families who are touched by a disability obtain the tools and education they need to become effective advocates. Stephanie is a certified Person Centered Plan Facilitator, a Council Member for the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities, and a 2012 Graduate of Oregon Partners in Policymaking.
