Stephanie Toone has been telling stories since she was a kid. Her interest in the written word started with short stories and journal entries about run-ins with classroom bullies and graduated to reporting on the dilemma of being a closeted teenager by the time she was a high school student. That knack for words developed into a career as a journalist accumulating bylines in publications like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Tennessean, Chicago Tribune and the Virginian-Pilot. Her passion for meaningful storytelling has led her to the path of nonprofit communications with a goal of elevating the work of Captain Planet Foundation and engaging philanthropic souls across the globe who want to help CPF save the planet.
As a mom, there’s little leisure time, but she enjoys traveling, the arts and nature walks when time permits.
