Stephanie Rice is a freelance journalist who calls San Francisco home but can often be found writing and photographing stories from destinations around the globe. She has lived in Egypt and Guatemala and has also reported from Turkey, Israel and Sri Lanka.

Experienced in breaking news and investigative reporting for local and international publications, Stephanie has covered everything from young girls sold into domestic servitude in Cairo to the Barry Bonds steroids perjury trial to a campaign finance scandal at California’s largest community college to the aftermath of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Guatemala - and much, much more.

Her work has been published by the Christian Science Monitor, Agence France-Presse, San Francisco Chronicle, Center for Investigative Reporting, GlobalPost, SF Weekly, Sacramento Bee, Salon.com and many others.

Stephanie was one of eight young American reporters chosen as a 2011 GlobalPost/Open Hands reporting fellow in Cairo.

In addition to reporting, Stephanie regularly does freelance editing, research and fact checking for news organizations and individual clients. She is a native English speaker who can also conduct interviews in Spanish.

A proud alumna of the City College of San Francisco journalism program, Stephanie has also volunteered as a mentor for students there. She is originally from the rain-soaked, over-caffeinated city of Portland, Ore. and sometimes still misses the smell of pine trees.
