Master of Science in Historic Preservation
Stephanie is a 2015 graduate of the Historic Preservation master's program. While at UT, she served as a Coordinator for the Career Services office, Graduate Teaching Assistant for Construction I and Creative Problem Solving, and Graduate Research Assistant for the Architecture & Planning Library.
Currently, Stephanie is a Senior Historic Preservation Specialist with the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation. Her role facilitates the design review process and contributes to the development of community-based projects centered around the city's many historic resources. Prior to joining the OHP team, Stephanie served as a Project Design Assistant with the State Preservation Board in Austin, primarily in the coordination and execution of the 2016 Exterior Preservation Project of the Texas State Capitol building. During that time, she assessed the condition of over 400 of the Capitol's historic wood windows, monitored project progress in the field, and advocated for the implementation of new technologies into traditional processes, which resulted in the integration of digital modeling and 3D printing technology into the replication of original brass hardware dating to 1888.
In 2016, Stephanie joined the inaugural class of ARCUS leadership fellows, organized by the Preservation50 Coalition. Additionally, she attended the National Trust for Historic Preservation conference in Houston as a Diversity Scholar, and presented original research at the Association for Preservation Technology (APT) conference in San Antonio. She is an active member of Preservation Austin's Education Committee, the Mid Tex Mod chapter of DOCOMOMO US, and Preservation Texas.
In addition to her preservation education at UT, Stephanie holds a BS in Interior Design from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is continually interested in the countless ways preservation technology, architectural design, and urban planning intersect, and how cultural, political, and socioeconomic factors guide decisions made within the built environment.
