Graduate Research Analyst
Stephanie Etienne is a Graduate Research Analyst at the Nowak Metro Finance Lab currently supporting the Managing Director with various components of the Institute's projects. She is currently working on projects aimed at providing insight to common assumptions around employment, community development, and wealth attainment with a focus on their impact in historically divested and excluded communities and neighborhoods. Stephanie holds a B.A. in Multimedia Journalism and a M.A. in Political Science from Florida Atlantic University and is currently pursuing a Masters in Public Policy at Temple University. She is actively involved in partnering and supporting neighborhoods in Philadelphia as a Special Projects Coordinator with the nonprofit organization Ordinarie Heroes and takes pride in her ability to use her experience to advocate for individuals and families whose voices tend to be discounted and missing in research.
