A graduate of the University of California Santa Cruz, Stephanie is a space holder, medicine woman, and teacher from the Bay Area. She has worked with Barrios Unidos’ Prison Project in Santa Cruz to conduct programming in the jails concentrating on the power of culture to heal. Since then she has been interested in all ways of healing herself, the community, and our connection with the earth.
She works to serve and heal the youth of Oakland at Brewer Edna Middle School, as well as the women in the West County Detention Facility through the non-profit Reach Fellowship International. Her tools for healing so far are Nonviolence principals and training, music, yoga/sports, gardening and cooking sustainably, and DIY projects.
Stephanie is an advocate and a bridge person for the isolated youth and elder communities with a life goal to help break up systems that keep us disconnected from ourselves, each other and the Earth.
