Stephanie has diverse experience in the transportation sector, primarily working to assist cities around the world in implementing transit systems that act as the lever for improved urban livability and economic opportunity. At TransitCenter, Stephanie oversees projects relating to transit agency leadership and governance. This includes the transit agency board member workshops, subject-specific staff workshops, and city-specific technical assistance projects. Most recently, she co-authored TransitCenter’s publication, A Bid For Better Transit, which provides best practice guidance for agencies interested in contracting for service operations.

She was a primary author of a report on the land development impacts of BRT, LRT and Streetcars across the US.
