Stephanie Kensy came to Vault Communications after spending seven years on the “other side” of editorial and print journalism. Most recently, Stephanie served as senior editor at StayWell, a leading content creator for custom communications distributed by hospital systems and health insurers. Before her tenure at StayWell, Stephanie worked as an editor for a Philadelphia parenting magazine and as an intern with area magazines and a community newspaper. This significant experience provided Stephanie with a valuable perspective when helping our clients craft and pitch their stories. While bending over backwards to exceed the objectives of any client project comes naturally to Stephanie, she’s no stranger to backbends on a yoga mat, either. She’s currently completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training, and we’re more than happy to indulge in occasional after-work meditation and relaxation sessions led by Vault’s resident yogi.
