Stephanie is a writer, artist, and educator with a lifelong passion for exchanging knowledge that’s led her on adventures across the globe. She was born and raised in Wisconsin with a Great Lake to the east, an industrial city to the north, a metropolis to the south, and the countryside to the west. For the past six years she has located her artistic home in Boston, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts and learned to run (mainly after the train). During the 2015-16 school year, Stephanie taught high school English in Angouleme, France, and explored more than 20 countries across Europe and North Africa. Stephanie is now an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Bentley University where she teachers dramatic and expository writing. She also teaches creative writing at Grub Street Writing Community and private English Language lessons. Her teaching and research interests center around speculative fiction, non-western and postcolonial narratives, and feminism.
