Stephanie joined the Post team as a reporter in 2004 and held roles including senior reporter, supplements editor and special projects editor before becoming editor in 2013.
Stephanie has taken the title into the modern era with the Post Live app launching – a continuously updated content app, which became responsive across all platforms in 2016. Also that year, Stephanie oversaw the switch from publishing weekly to monthly, introducing the high quality magazine we know today – publishing the first monthly edition in May 2016 along with a redesigned website reflecting reader demands for online daily content and breaking news with longer form detailed analysis in print. In an age of search engine optimisation, Post also added ‘Insurance’ to its moniker to become Insurance Post, a title it had been affectionately known by for years.
