has wanted to be an actress ever since she fell in love with The Rifleman, at approximately the age shown in this photo. She has been working steadily in theatre, film, commercials, narration and radio for decades.
She has studied with Shakespeare & Company (Text and Combat), Kristin Linklater (Voice), Keith Johnstone (Improv), Rena Mirecka (Grotowski), Living Stage and the San Francisco Mime Troupe (theater for social change), and is trained in ballet, jazz, modern, and African dance. She holds a BA in Theater from Brandeis University, and a degree in Deaf Studies from Northern Essex Community College.
Her extensive Theatre Credits include the following: NYC - Vineyard Theatre, The Women's Project. Regional - Kennedy Center, Trinity Repertory. Boston Area - Huntington Theatre, Lyric Stage, New Rep, Nora Theatre (IRNE nomination), Gloucester Stage, Merrimack Repertory.

As a Voice Over artist, Stephanie has recorded scores of radio spots and has been the spokesperson for multiple ad campaigns, including more than 10 years as the TV, radio, and telephone voice of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. Her warm voice and natural authority have led to a specialty in long form technical, medical, and financial narration. If it makes money, or it hurts (or both), she can pronounce it with assurance and discuss it at length.
As a Teacher, Stephanie has worked with kindergarteners through adults, in settings ranging from inner city housing projects and public schools to private universities. She is on the faculty of Bentley University, and has been a guest lecturer at Brandeis University, Emerson Summer Studio, Walnut Hill School for the Arts, Lawrence Academy, and CP Casting.
