WRITER & EDITOR

Hi! I'm Stephanie, a Canadian journalist. I've spent the last 10 years living and working in Los Angeles, reporting on everything from the FBI's notorious definition of rape to the joy of a Las Vegas wedding. 

My first book, "Healing with Red Light Therapy: How Red and Near-Infrared Light Can Manage Pain, Combat Aging, and Transform Your Health," is out now from Ulysses Press and is available everywhere books are sold.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Work Experience

2019 to Present

I cover all things money at Business Insider and lead Personal Finance Insider's freelance program.

BUSINESS INSIDER
PERSONAL FINANCE EDITOR

2016 to 2019

HELLOGIGGLES
SENIOR LIFESTYLE EDITOR

I oversaw the lifestyle vertical at HelloGiggles and developed several of the site's signature series, including: Feminist Passport, a monthly travel column; I Rise, a mini-series centered on Black women's mental health; and Is This Normal?, a health and relationships advice column.

2014 to 2016

MS. MAGAZINE

RESEARCH EDITOR & ONLINE EDITOR

I co-edited the Ms. Blog with senior editor Michele Kort and managed a rigorous fact-checking program for both the blog and magazine. My reporting helped get the FBI to change its definition of rape and end a problematic ad campaign that shamed victims of sexual harassment.

2011 to 2013

HUFFPOST
EDITOR

I co-launched HuffPost's Weddings vertical and rose from associate to vertical editor in my time on staff. I managed the day-to-day of the site and traveled to New York City annually to cover bridal fashion week.
