As an Innovation Center Program Manager, Stephanie helps manage the financial and administrative flow of MSC’s fiscally sponsored projects. As a part of the larger MSC team, Stephanie enjoys bridging and strengthening team relationships by sharing baked goods, rock climbing, and engagements outside of the work place, to continue practicing how we bring and be our whole selves. She is excited to support projects and an organization that involve deep and critical thinking on the systems we build, actions we take, and movements we shape.
Stephanie joined MSC with a wide range of roles and experiences that have inspired her current focus on how our movements are accountable to the communities we serve and issues we seek to address. She has previously worked as a campaign consultant; completed a U.S. Department of State Fulbright grant, through which she focused on youth development in rural Malaysia; and served as a Field Representative for a California assembly member in Los Angeles. Her work experience includes community organizing, policy analysis and advocacy, government relations, campaigns, storytelling, and youth development. Stephanie is currently the Co-Chair of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) Bay Area chapter and a fundraising committee member of Asian and Pacific Islander Obesity Prevention Alliance (APIOPA).
Stephanie holds a degree in Media Studies, with a minor in Global Poverty and Practice from the University of California, Berkeley. Her Chinese-Malaysian identity–and the stories and people held within that developing identity–strongly influence her views and relationships. Her other interests include dancing, running, and audio storytelling.
