Contributing Editor

Stephanie Groves is a Contributing Editor and Editorial Board Member of Indy Maven, as well as a writer, reporter, and stylist who is passionate about food, culture, fashion, and lifestyle. Prior to moving to Indy with her husband to start a family, she lived in NYC for almost half her lifetime, got a law degree and worked as a corporate lawyer for a hot second, then scrapped it all to pursue a career in magazines. She has worked as the fashion and home director for Woman’s World, a fashion writer at Life & Style, and a nightlife reporter for People. She was also a contributing fashion and beauty editor at Working Mother (waaaay before she ever thought about having a child), and was a fashion expert for About.com back when it was a thing. She has styled magazine and celebrity photo shoots ranging from fitness fashion spreads for Shape to the cover of AARP The Magazine.

Until she can finally get around to writing one of the chick-lit novels she has in her head or starting one of the business ideas she dreams up but never does anything with, you can usually find her playing with her young daughter and fostering at least one rescue dog.

“I believe in Indy Maven and its mission and am proud to be an editorial board member. It is an honor to be involved with an organization that uplifts and supports women in so many impactful ways.” – Stephanie
