is an American professional wrestler, better known by her ring names Sassy Stephie and Sassy Stephanie. She regularly performs for many independent promotions in the Midwest and the East Coast, such as Shimmer Women Athletes, Jersey All Pro Wrestling, WSU and OCW. She also has experience in Ring of Honor and Chikara. Career Sassy Stephie began her career ring announcing for a local wrestling promotion in the Akron, Ohio area. She was given a chance when the regular announcer had to sit out. One of the commentators suggested her to the promoter, since she had previous experience as a DJ at a bowling alley. After becoming the regular ring announcer, it was suggested to her that she get trained, since she loved wrestling so much. Stephie jumped at the chance and began training at Jeff Cannon's school in Coshocton. OCW She made her wrestling debut in Cannon's promotion Ohio Championship Wrestling at their first annual all ladies' show in March 2007. She lost to Lexi Lane (who would go on to become TNA's Madison Rayne) in the first round of the tournament. Although both were friendly at this point, this match would ignite a rivalry between the two. She also competed in a tag team match later in the night, teaming with Lorelei Lee to lose to Josie and Jessicka Havok. Lane went on to win the tournament and become the first OCW Women's Champion, and Stephie would get several shots at her title over the next couple of years. She did manage to beat Lane in a no disqualification Catfight Brawl, but suffered an injury in that match that caused her to miss significant ring time. Stephie competed against Lane in both singles and tag matches, often utilizing partners such as Angel Dust or Hailey Hatred to take on Lane (later renamed Ashley Lane) and her partner Nevaeh. At the second annual Ladies Night in 2008, Stephie once again competed in the tournament. She had a chance to win a bye to the finals in the opening battle royale, but came up short. She lost her first round match, a four-way between herself, Allison Danger, Ashley Lane and Lorelei Lee. Later in the night, she teamed with Josie and beat Lorelei Lee and Alere Little Feather in tag team action. In April 2009, she competed in the third annual Ladies Night tournament. Although she lost her first round match to Lorelei Lee, all the losers of the first round got a second chance and she won a triple threat against Nevaeh and Mary Elizabeth Monroe to advance to the semi-finals. However, she came up short against Jessicka Havok and was eliminated. In the summer, she suffered a controversial loss to Amber O'Neal, after Ashley Lane appointed herself the special guest referee.
