Stephanie Rice is an experienced freelance journalist based in San Francisco. With more than a decade of reporting and editing experience for outlets such as Agence France-Presse, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Center for Investigative Reporting, Stephanie has covered everything from revolution to campaign finance. (Browse stories by topic above.)
The stories she has found most meaningful and rewarding have 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. She also has a strong background in investigative reporting – her stories have prompted elected officials in San Francisco to stop paying themselves for meetings they never attended and exposed questionable practices by powerful building inspectors. She was a reporting fellow in Egypt with The GroundTruth Project in the aftermath of the country’s 2011 uprisings.
More recently, Stephanie took a break from reporting to complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing at San Francisco State. These days, you can mostly find her in her kitchen, typing words while drinking too much coffee. She is a copy editor for the Center for Investigative Reporting and part of an editorial team at Medium that works with self-publishing writers to edit and promote their work. She also works with individual clients who need help with tasks such as data research and fact-checking.
