Hello! My name is Steph and I am thrilled to be included in the STH Alumni Mentoring Network. I am a May 2017, M.T.S graduate currently working in higher education at Suffolk University’s Division of Student Affairs. During my degree program I cultivated an invested interest in building deep, meaningful community from a humanist perspective, apart from religious institutions. My work often centered on non-Christian theologies, multiculturalism, interfaith dialogue and sociological perspectives.
I also attended Boston University for undergrad where I earned a degree in sociology and Deaf studies. My professional experience includes serving 8+ years in day and residential youth camps, working at an emergency shelter for women and children, being a Recruitment Specialist for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, advising students and running programming at an international school for English language learners, renting apartments in Boston as a licensed real estate agent and more! I love variety.
I passionately pursue a life of purposeful adventure! I’m discerning how to create my own vocational path, incorporating elements of everything I’m passionate about: the outdoors, the arts and community. For now, you can find me rock climbing, riding my road bike, reading poetry, eating ice cream and watching my favorite TV shows with my partner Steve, or grabbing a drink with friends at Grendel’s!
