Stephanie holds a Collaborative Bachelor of Science Degree and Dental Hygiene Diploma from the University of Detroit Mercy and a Master’s of Education Degree from the University of Windsor. As a Registered Dental Hygienist, Stephanie practiced in both General Dentistry and in Orthodontics for 6 years and was a Part-Time Clinical and Classroom Instructor here in our Dental Hygiene Department. It was at that time she fell in love with teaching.

In 2007, Stephanie started as a Sessional Instructor and since that time she has taught in our Pre-Heath Science, Nursing and Adult Upgrading Departments. Stephanie was thrilled to gain a full time Faculty position as of Aug 2014 in our Adult Upgrading Department where she taught Biology, Chemistry, Math and Coordinated the Department. She is now located in our Centre for Academic Excellence and is the Coordinator of the College Educator Development Program and Professional Development.

Stephanie had a very positive experience with the mentorship program here at St. Clair College as a new Faculty member and was more than willing to be a mentor herself. She believes in the importance of building good solid supportive relationships with the professionals she works with and always feels there is so much to gain and learn by sharing and exploring teaching experiences.
