During her decade long tenure with Union Studio, Stephanie has served as project manager on many of the firm’s most challenging architectural and urban design projects, ranging from the design of a LEED Gold neighborhood in Washington State to a new 24,000 sf library for the Town of Tiverton, Rhode Island.

Stephanie is a natural leader with a passion for making positive changes in her community. Her interest in sustainable urban design has driven her to explore challenges of urbanism across the globe.

In the summer of 2011, Stephanie received a highly competitive LeBrun Travel Grant from the Center for Architecture in New York City, which enabled her to travel to Indonesia to study urban villages. Recently, Stephanie was accepted into the Master’s Program in Sustainable Urban Development at Oxford University in England, which “exposes students to sustainable urbanism as both an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary subject at global and local scales.”

Through this 2 year, part-time program Stephanie is studying alongside international colleagues in areas of climate change and the built environment, place-making and urban design, financing sustainability, and sustainable transport.

Stephanie is a passionate New Urbanist and is active on the board of CNU New England. Additionally, Stephanie served as the President of AIA Rhode Island from 2015-2016, and was a founding member of Providence’s Architecture for Humanity chapter.
