Stefanie found the resources of Howard Brown very beneficial in her Gender Affirming Journey, which she commenced in 2016. Stefanie joined the Vernita Gray Council early in its foundations. She also serves on Howard Brown’s Aging Services Advisory Board, which she joined in fall 2019.
Stefanie spends significant time supporting the LGBT youth community as well as working with the senior community. She is a member of the Village Chicago, a virtual community of people over 50 years of age, who have retired voluntarily or involuntarily, but who are not ready to quit.
Stefanie can be found at the Art Institute of Chicago, when she is not speaking at colleges, universities and retirement centers about diversity issues.
Stefanie lives in Edgewater with her roommate, Jane Callahan-Moore, who manages the Hart to Hart Senior Ministries in Edgewater Community.
