Reverend Stephanie’s roots in southwest Oklahoma grow deep. A native of Duncan, Oklahoma, she was an All-State Basketball player at Duncan High School and later attended college at the University of Oklahoma, where she majored in sociology and from which she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1999. Following graduation from OU, Reverend Stephanie served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia before returning to her hometown as Executive Director of the Chisholm Trail Art Council. In 2007 she began studies at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts from which she was awarded her Masters of Divinity in 2010.  She was ordained to the priesthood in July of 2010.

Following her ordination, Reverend Stephanie accepted a position as curate at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, eventually serving as Priest-in-Charge during the regular priest’s extended absence due to illness. Since her time at St. Luke’s, she has served as Assistant Priest at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Weston, Massachusetts, Campus Missioner for the Diocese of Kansas to colleges and universities across the diocese, and as Chaplain and Teacher at Bishop Seabury Academy in Lawrence, Kansas.

Reverend Stephanie is married to Richard Jenkins, a cartoonist, educator, and author. They are proud parents of two children, Henry (7) and Cora (5).
