She obtained a minor in Fine Art through her focused studies in Scientific Illustration, where she first discovered the career that perfectly combines her passions of science, art, and education. 

Stephanie aims to to create aesthetic and accurate visuals, which effectively clarify and reveal science and medicine, ultimately improving the health of humans and animals through education. Stephanie is a member of the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI), and the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI).

Stephanie has been our journal’s illustrator for over 3 years. Stephanie has created hundreds of scientifically accurate and easily understandable illustrations for our student readers.

Medical Illustrators draw what cannot be seen,
Watch what hasn’t been done,
And tell thousands about it without saying a word.
