Stephanie started dancing at the age of 3 at PSOD and continued her dance education at Meredith Elementary, Traci Hall & Co, back to PSOD! and finally West Chester University, where she was a part of the University Dance Company and served in roles such as Vice President and Treasurer. Upon graduation, Stephanie began teaching at After School Activities Partnership with the Philadelphia School District, Young Performers Theatre Camp in Philadelphia and PSOD, where she brought her modern/contemporary style! Stephanie has her Master’s in Arts Administration from Drexel University and has worked for companies such as the Walnut Street Theatre, Pennsylvania Ballet, and Koresh Dance Company. She currently works for the National MS Society as the Sr. Manager of Leadership Events and when she’s not working, loves spending time with her boys!

Favorite PSOD Memory

“I love that as a teacher, I’ve been able to teach some of my students from their very first modern class, into high school and beyond. Watching them grow every year, performing on stage and becoming teachers themselves, is THE BEST FEELING!”
