As a taxonomy consultant, I help clients understand, organize, and leverage their data through taxonomy development and implementation.

Stephanie works with clients to develop taxonomies and manage large scale tagging initiatives, most recently on projects with General Mills, the UN Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the National Kidney Foundation.

Prior to taxonomy work, Stephanie worked in public and university libraries for over 15 years, most recently in an academic librarian role. There, she cultivated a strong capacity to determine user needs and to translate those needs into action.

Stephanie holds a Master of Information degree with a dual specialization in libraries and archives, and a Master of Arts degree in French Literature, both from the University of Toronto. During her studies, she also completed the Collaborative Program in Book History and Print Culture. In addition to her work with Dovecot, she currently works in the rare and antiquarian book trade.

When she’s not working with books and taxonomies, Stephanie can be found wandering in forests, swimming in lakes, doing yoga, and working with animals (namely cats, dogs, and horses).
