Prior to joining RMI, Stephanie worked for the Institute for the Built Environment at Colorado State University where she guided project teams through the LEED certification process and contributed to research and educational outreach programs. While at CSU, Stephanie focused her thesis research on Living Buildings, which involved conducting a large charrette to focus on the development of a comprehensive framework, called LENSES, for defining and facilitating the creation of regenerative built environments.

Stephanie has been actively involved in the USGBC Colorado Chapter-Northern Colorado Branch and also worked with the Colorado Chapter to identify local Regional Priority credits for LEED 2009, a task fitting for this Colorado native.
