nDash Writer Profile for Stephanie Ariganello


About Me

I'm an experienced writer + editor + strategist. While others in math class were groaning about story problems, I would gleefully read about Juan and his oranges or Rebecca and her favorite pencils. I loved digging into the logic of the problems, sure, but what really interested me was the backstory. It's this curiosity that continues to drive me as a professional communicator. I've worked as a journalist, science writer/editor, marketing strategist, PR consultant and more. Whatever the topic, I can cover it, bringing my unique blend of experience, instinct and creativity to the table.

My specialties include: environmental science, social science, food and food service, film, fashion, home decor, and marketing and communications.
