Stephanie grew up in Glenview, IL and, after spending her undergraduate years in rural Ohio, was determined to leave the Midwest. It was not until moving and living in Washington, D.C. that she finally embraced her roots and opened her heart to the Midwest. Stephanie is now happy to call Madison, Wisconsin home! She is getting her Masters in Library and Information Studies from the iSchool at UW-Madison, where she has been able to explore her interests in digital archives and preservation, accessibility, and digital learning. Stephanie enjoys brewing and drinking coffee, the outdoors, creating art, and exploring physical and virtual spaces.
