Before joining the EFA team in 2021, Stephanie earned an MA in Media Practice for Development & Social Change at the University of Sussex. There, she focused her research on the ways in which the news media uses language to depict marginalised social groups, particularly relating to issues surrounding poverty, race, and social mobility.
Prior to her graduate studies, Stephanie spent time working as a news reporter in the United States and later as an EFL teacher in state schools in France and Spain. At EFA, she leads on fundraising and communications, supports the finance team, facilitates project development, monitoring and reporting across the organisation, and serves on the Executive Team.
In her spare time, Stephanie is a hobby photographer, a lover of a good countryside walk, and an avid language learner — she speaks French and Spanish, and is currently studying Arabic and Norwegian.
