Hey there!

My name is Stephanie. I'm a Boise-based journalist, freelance writer, and fitness fanatic. I'm a New York City native who grew up in Queens and went to school in Manhattan. Now, I'm a Boise-based journalist, freelance writer, and fitness fanatic.A life-long victim of the YMCA family package, I didn’t learn to love fitness until earning my master’s in magazine journalism at the University of Missouri, where I discovered glow-in-the-dark cycling. After maxing out my need for (stationary) speed, I decided to combine my love of journalism and fitness by writing for publications including MensHealth.com, Men’s Health magazine, MensFitness.com, EagleCreek.com, ReadersDigest.com, EatThis.com, and Bodybuilding.com. I am currently the senior editor of WeMotivate Media, a subsidiary of Vitalize, which also owns Bodybuilding.com  and Verity. 

 I'm a firm believer in morning coffee, hard work, and chasing the burn. I love the challenge of healthy cooking, whipping up protein-rich vegetarian meals, and picking things up and putting them down. Thanks for reading through my portfolio. If my writing has piqued your interest, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a line at stephaniesmith365@gmail.com.
