Stephanie Nolen

Stephanie Nolen

Stephanie Nolen (born September 3 1971 in Montreal) is a Canadian journalist and writer. She is currently the African correspondent for "The Globe and Mail", working out of Johannesburg, South Africa.

Early life and education

Nolen was raised in a Catholic family in Montreal and Ottawa. She earned a degree in journalism from the University of King's College in Halifax, then earned a Master's degree in economic development from the London School of Economics.

Journalistic career

Nolen began working for "The Globe and Mail" in 1993. In 2001-2002, she served as its correspondent covering the invasion of Afghanistan and the fall of the Taliban. She continued this theme in covering the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Shortly after this, Nolen requested and was granted the role of the Globe's Africa correspondent. Her dispatches concerned the consequences of war and political instability in a variety of places within Africa, particularly Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Uganda (specifically the Lord's Resistance Army). However, the most recurring theme in her coverage was the health, social, and political consequences of the AIDS epidemic in Africa.

Personal life

Nolen lives in Johannesburg with her partner, Meril Rasmussen, a filmmaker. Together they have a son, Darragh, born September 2006. She told "Toronto Life" magazine that she always said she would not marry Rasmussen until her gay friends could get married. "Now they’re all married and I’m not," she said.
