Steph Strickland is the Director of Research at JUV Consulting and currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts. At the age of 23, she is working toward her Master’s in Media Science from Boston University. Steph is known for getting way too excited about well-organized spreadsheets (...it’s just so satisfying...) and will use her inquisitive nature to incorrectly guess your zodiac sign. Her favorite part of the job is connecting the science of data with the art of storytelling to spark something transformational.
In her previous experience, Steph has collaborated with brands including Coca-Cola, Hyundai, and Adobe Creative Cloud to create impactful brand and campaign strategies. She also led an extensive public health campaign related to COVID-19, where her findings in the City of Gainesville were shared across the country to other college towns. Prior to working in agency settings, Steph produced content for several publications as a writer and photographer. Even today, you can find her moonlighting as a writer for magazines and digital publications.
Before starting at JUV, Steph spent 5 months hiking the Appalachian Trail, and she did it in a tye-dye dress from Dollar General. Steph, alternatively known as “Sparky” on the trail, is passionate about the outdoors and environmental justice. When she isn’t working, you can find her stargazing and getting lost in the mountains.
