After graduating from Yale, where she was the captain of the women’s golf team, she moved to NYC in 2005 to discover who she was without golf.
Stephanie initially pursued careers in law, private equity, fund-raising, fashion and PR, before she returned to her first passion with golf and delved into the media world. She hoped to bring a fresh, more entertaining perspective to golf’s media coverage, as long as diversity. She started a blog in 2009 and it soon grew into something much larger than she envisioned.
