    Stephanie Milton believes that intentional listening and radical acceptance are key to transformative embodied experiences. Having lived and worked with diverse communities in and outside of higher education, she strives to embody the work that her soul must have:  authentic liberation for all who want it. As one of her role models, Fannie Lou Hamer, once said, "When I liberate myself, I liberate others. If you don't speak out ain't nobody going to speak out for you." Stephanie has always centered womxn's work in her professional life and scholarship, having received a BA in Political Science from Spelman College, researched the intersections of race and gender within political and spiritual communities while earning her MA in Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis, volunteered in anti-violence circles, managed and directed the UC Womxn's Center, served as a member of the Santa Cruz County Women's Commission, and advised several gender-based organizations. Before she returned to UC Santa Cruz, she worked in healthcare and higher education as a dean of spiritual life, adjunct lecturer, chaplain, and director of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
