Stephanie began her career as a journalism student working with an investigative reporter at the San Francisco Chronicle to cover a campaign finance scandal unfolding at her college. She helped to expose additional wrongdoing, and the stories she co-reported eventually led to criminal charges and guilty pleas.

Stephanie went on to report for a variety of outlets, both locally and internationally. Her stories have often focused on vulnerable populations, such as young Egyptian girls rented out as live-in maids and indigenous Guatemalans neglected by their government in the aftermath of a massive earthquake. Closer to home, her reporting has prompted elected officials to stop paying themselves for meetings they never attended and exposed questionable practices by powerful building inspectors. Stephanie was a reporting fellow in Egypt with The GroundTruth Project in the aftermath of the country‚Äôs 2011 uprisings. She is an alum of the City College of San Francisco journalism program and holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing from San Francisco State University.
