With a passion for performance evident even as a toddler, Stephanie transcends the stereotypical young actress, being largely self motivated and mistress of her own career, not the product of “stage mom” expectations. She takes personal responsibility, auditioning, memorizing complex roles, and performing on her own. Yet as multiple filmmakers have commented, it is in front of a camera where she truly seems to shine, conveying subtle meanings and emotions in an almost magical way. Currently studying film and directing at Emerson College in Boston, Stephanie has starred in three acclaimed short films and appeared in numerous others. Her family, who cannot act to save their lives, are amazed that she wins more film auditions than not.
