Stefanie Boyne joined Tharrington Smith in 2017 as a paralegal and legal assistant for criminal defense attorney Douglas Kingsbery. Earlier that year, she completed the Paralegal Certificate Program at the University of North Carolina.
Before joining the legal field, Stefanie was a high school social studies teacher. She attended North Carolina State University, earning her Bachelor of Arts in History in 2014 and her Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Social Studies Education in 2016. She taught American History and World Humanities at Lee County High School in Sanford, North Carolina. Seeing many of her students struggle to navigate their way through the legal system inspired Stefanie to transition from education to law.
Stefanie grew up in Cary, North Carolina. She met her husband performing at Comedy Worx Improv Comedy Club in Raleigh, where they continue to perform together on weekends. She also enjoys reading, yoga, and discovering new vegetarian recipes.
