Stephanie St. Martin is an inbound marketer, philosopher, published author, and social media expert. Stephanie currently serves as Brand Awareness Manager for Ariel, a communication training company and registered B Corporation that empowers organizations to have true influence while helping to ensure your people write, speak and sell with impact and emotional intelligence.
Despite starting her career as an adjunct philosophy professor at Bristol Community College, Stephanie quickly adapted and learned the importance of branding, content marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), social media, and began to write in a blog-style format, a style drastically different than what her collegiate professors expected of her.
After getting an education in digital marketing from Care.com, Stephanie returned to her alma mater, Boston College, for a brand new role: BC Alumni Social Media Manager. There, she developed a unique voice for the alumni social media accounts, exponentially building a vibrant social media community on various networks along the way. She then continued on to d50 media, a marketing agency outside of Boston, and helped to create both social media and content strategies for clients.
Stephanie graduated with a BA in Communications and Perspectives (Philosophy Honors Sequence) from Boston College in 2007. Her thesis, "Recipe for Disney-aster: Contemporary Romantic Ideals in Walt Disney films" looks at the history of Disney princesses and argues that they are the true villain in a reckless pursuit of happily ever after. She received the Bernard Lonergan, S.J. scholarship for excellence in philosophy and went on to earn a MA in Philosophy.
As a published author, you can find her work in the Popular Culture and Philosophy series. She's also been a featured blogger for EverTrue, Care.com, and Boston.com.
In her spare time, she enjoys going to baseball games (and keeping score!), playing trivia, and continuing her quest at visiting all 50 state Capitol buildings. The current count: 32.
