Position: Contributing Writer
Stephanie joined the Skirts and Scuffs team as a contributor in the Fall of 2013. She resides just outside of Tampa, FL only 2 hours from Daytona International Speedway. Stephanie joined the team after writing an independent blog for a year.
She fell in love with racing by accident, literally, in 2005 after an injury. A friend coming over to provide support asked if she could bring a tape of the recent race, and Stephanie agreed.
While watching the race, Stephanie asked questions of her friend, and found what a thrill racing was. She continued to actively follow the sport after that day. Two years later, she attended her first race at Daytona, and realized what a passion she had for the sport. It wasn't until 2011 that she found the courage to begin writing about racing, sharing her passion with others. Her focus included opinion pieces on the state of the sport and happenings at the track.
Stephanie graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Mass Communications, specializing in Public Relations. Although her degree is from USF, she is an avid Florida Gator fan. She works in sales for a telecommunications company. Her other interests include travel, baking, spending time with friends and family, and doting on her three cats.
