Stephanie thrives on engaging with different communities, not just in a performance capacity, but also in organization and management.
In 2010, she became one of the co-founders of ChantLanta, one of the largest yoga and kirtan festivals in the Southeast. Its mission is to promote sacred music, build community, and raise money for charity. A free event, ChantLanta has raised more than $50,000 for local and international charities.
She focused her attention on sustainability initiatives, including composting and recycling, starting in 2016. She served as Director 2017-2019.
In 2 different years, Stephanie’s efforts efforts yielded at least half of the event’s entire donation. In 2011, the silent auction she organized raised more than half of the total. The 2019 festival raised the highest donation to date: $12,000. Of that total, half was under her direct supervision.
She currently serves as Co-Producer of Ecstatic Dance Atlanta, a local chapter of the global movement. Ecstatic Dance is a safe, supportive, and sacred container for free-form, conscious expression.
For several years, Stephanie managed operations and logistics for the art support/theme camp for Charlie Smith and the Art of Such n Such. Before Burning Man, she aided in fundraising and event planning, including organizing silent auctions. On playa, she managed non-art logistics for the group, which consisted of people from Europe, Asia, and all over the US. She was also one of the producers of Georgia's Burning Man Decompression in 2015.
