Content Writer

Stella’s life goal is to explore and write about the many facets of happiness – love, health, compassion, self-knowledge, and personal fulfillment. In addition to various writing gigs, she earned her stripes as an editor and translator. Considering that she is (enthusiastically) a team player, her favorite part of her job is getting to work on long, nuanced, and collaborative articles on Wholistique.

She has a background in theoretical math and she spent a few years teaching teenagers the finer points of calculus. This left her with an appreciation for the simple things in life. When she isn’t writing or falling down research spirals, Stella likes spending time with her family, her dogs, and a good book.
