Stephanie is thrilled to be part of the Action News Now team. Her story coverage has taken her everywhere from the high-stakes world of Silicon Valley startups, to the heated political atmosphere abroad in Asia.
Stephanie returns to the newsroom after several years producing media in-house for top venture-backed companies in the Bay Area. She began her career as a production assistant at ABC 20/20 in New York, where she cut her teeth researching and fact-checking for Diane Sawyer, John Quinones and ABC News national correspondents. Stephanie is also a graduate of the competitive NBC Page Program, where she worked at the TODAY Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Saturday Night Live.
Stephanie is a Bay Area native and a graduate of UC Berkeley (Go Bears!) with degrees in Mass Communication and Chinese. She is recognized as one of Girls in Tech's Top 40 Under 40, and is also a member of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA).
Stephanie enjoys spending time with her Sheltie pup Merlin, horseback riding, video gaming and exploring the great outdoors -- when not chasing breaking news, of course! She is active on social media and invites you to share your story ideas with her.
