Stephanie served  as the Development Director of the UT Microfarm, a campus farm dedicated to sustainable, organic agriculture, and the President of UT Austin Chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. Through her involvement in these organizations, she explored issues of institutionalized racism and economic inequality, particularly regarding the relationship between racial and economic inequality in Austin, Texas, and access to fresh, healthy food. By connecting with local leaders and pioneering organizations such as Food for Black Thought, she seeks an interdisciplinary approach to addressing these issues in her community.
