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/worked in Egypt and Guatemala and has also reported from Turkey, Israel and Sri Lanka.

Stephanie began her career as a student reporter covering a campaign finance scandal at her college for the San Francisco Chronicle. She has gone on to report for local and international publications on issues ranging from young girls sold into domestic servitude in Cairo to the Barry Bonds steroids perjury trial 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. (Browse stories by topic above.)

Stephanie was one of eight young American reporters chosen as a GlobalPost/Open Hands reporting fellow in Cairo during the revolution’s aftermath.

A proud alumna of the City College of San Francisco journalism program, Stephanie has also volunteered as a CCSF journalism coach and is currently overseeing an investigative student project on pedestrian deaths.

In addition to reporting, Stephanie regularly does freelance editing, research and fact checking for news organizations and individual clients. A wandering freelancer at heart, she is happiest splitting her time between courthouses in San Francisco, shisha cafes in Cairo, ferries in Istanbul and comedors in Guatemala.

She is originally from the rain-soaked, over-caffeinated city of Portland, Ore., and sometimes still misses the smell of pine trees (but not the rain).
