Background

Prior to working at Ursinus, Stephanie was an educator at an institution for early childhood education. Stephanie’s focus was to implement teaching strategies that would enhance cognitive growth and development for her students. While working with young children over the course of 8 years, Stephanie discovered her passion for student success and achievement. From there she pursued a master’s degree in higher education with the goal of supporting underrepresented students as well as other student populations who face different barriers that come in the way of their success.

In her downtime, Stephanie loves to watch movies and go on walks along beautiful nature trails.
