Urbanista and a lover of cities, Stephanie brings an understanding of the land development process from her 12+ years working in architecture and urban design. She values both sides of the equation which lends her to develop creative win win solutions that create economic viability and build community. She founded NOMADgardens to provide the Mission Bay community a third place, outside the home and office. A place where neighbors could grow their own food, attend events and cultivate shared learning.
She has a masters degree in architecture and has worked on a number of regional and international projects. Along with working stateside, Stephanie spent two and a half years in England where she worked as an architectural and urban designer and traveled around Europe furthering her knowledge and love for cities and their complexity. She loves calling SF home and is excited about improving and learning from it.
In her spare time she enjoys brainstorming business ideas, attending hack-a-thons, running and enjoying beautiful hikes in the bay area. She loves to be inspired and seeks out opportunities as a design strategist to apply her design thinking and process driven approach to tackle any problem. Oh and she loves to hi-5.
