Stephanie Marchetti 

Doctor of Education (EdD)

You might not realize how active Stephanie Marchetti is if you watched how she relaxes with hobbies like gardening and horticulture. But professionally, Stephanie stays busy pursuing her passion for education.

She works full time at a community college in addition to serving as an online adjunct professor. She also runs testing and tutoring programs at the college level and supervises the tutoring program at a correctional facility. Stephanie sits on the board of a veteran’s outreach center with a residential component and helps to coordinate multiple fundraising events.

The online Doctor of Education (EdD) program appealed to her in part because it allowed flexibility, including the ability to write her dissertation during standard coursework. Part of her long-term career strategy is to position herself for administrative leadership. She eventually hopes to become the president of a college or university.
