Hi I am Stephanie Kegley!
I am not one to talk about myself, so writing this is hard, but here we go. I have been in marketing for over ten years, and I am pretty good at it. I have a psychology degree from Texas Christian University and will forever bleed purple.
Fifteen years ago, my life forever changed.
I was almost killed by someone who I loved dearly and who I thought, loved me. In that moment, as I was fighting for my life, my brain altered. No one speaks about the aftermath of such a traumatic events and what it can do to a person. I like to explain it this way- my brain, betrayed me and I developed PTSD, a panic disorder and Agoraphobia. This is what lead me to study Psychology. This is the moment my true passion was born. Although, I did many things to help domestic violence and survivors- I put off the true work I wanted to do in it (books, classes, seminars and more). I felt like I needed to learn more, be more, beat the mental illnesses before I could do something about it- which I have on most levels.
Fast forward to February 22, 2022 I posted a missing flyer for Marissa Grimes. A woman I view as my sister. The very next day, I got the call that brought me to my knees. My sisters body was located and her murderer was in custody.
So as I type this at 2:00am, it is time for me to stop putting off what I was meant to do. I am raging war on our judicial system when it comes to protecting victims of violence. I am working on many things to bring true awareness, protection, and help to victims of violence.
We will be creating a foundation in honor of Marissa Grimes, and I cannot wait to share that with everyone. I am honored, that I get to be a part of it.
I want to thank every survivor who has trusted me with their story. I have partnered with several foundations as well (more Information on them will be found throughout the website). It will take all of us to make this change.
It is time to get to work!
