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.
Health & Wellness
2019 to Present
I cover all things money at Business Insider and lead Personal Finance Insider's freelance program.
PERSONAL FINANCE EDITOR
2016 to 2019
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
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
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.
