Originally from Virginia, USA, Stephanie has called Berlin home since 2021. She has worked as a director, choreographer, producer, writer and editor, teacher, and artistic administrator. Before Catalyst, she was the 21-22 US Fulbright Research Scholar to Germany in Theatre Directing, studying tanztheater and climate change performance. Stephanie holds an MFA in Directing from The Theatre School at DePaul University (Chicago, IL) + a BA in Interdisciplinary Arts Administration from the University of Virginia (Charlottesville, VA).
Stephanie gets a deep satisfaction from enabling student growth and is driven by witnessing their passion for their craft. That, and copious amounts of coffee.
