Stephanie edits content for the AHA website and blog, AHA Today. She also maintains the AHA's social media presence and provides support for the organization's digital initiatives. A native of Georgia, Stephanie completed her AB in English and Spanish at the University of Georgia in 2010 and moved to Charlotte, where she worked writing well-punctuated closed captioning for television. Stephanie received her MA in English literature from the University of Virginia, where she specialized in American literature, textual studies, and book history. There, she learned about digital humanities methodologies by assisting on a variety of digital projects on both literary and historical topics. She participated in last year's Praxis Program in the UVA Scholars' Lab and was a Rare Book School UVA fellow. Stephanie is particularly interested in digital applications to textual editing, and for her MA thesis she completed a digital edition of a chapter from James Fenimore Cooper's 1840 historical novel, Mercedes of Castile. Stephanie joined the AHA in November 2014, shortly after completing her MA, and is excited to be living in the D.C. area. In her spare time she plays the violin and researches geneaology.
