Stephani Bloomquist


Stephani Bloomquist has done a little bit of everything at Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. Literally. From her humble beginnings as a fact-checking intern—researching an inordinate number of shops and restaurants—to hunting and gathering the very best accoutrements for photo shoots. In her current role as Associate Managing Editor of she oversees the magazine’s social media presence, creates and edits online content for Mpls.St.Paul, manages the magazine's blogs, e-newsletters, and guides, manages interns, and generally keeps the website running smoothly. A graduate of the University of St. Thomas journalism program, she spends her free time perusing food and fashion blogs, trying new recipes, and fondly reminiscing about her days as a hip-hop dancer.
