Stephanie Hendrixson Senior Editor

Stephanie (Monsanty) Hendrixson reports on 3D printing technology and applications as senior editor for Additive Manufacturing, and is also co-host of The Cool Parts Show, a video series that highlights unique, unusual and weird 3D printed parts. She got her start in manufacturing media in 2012, through an internship with AM's sister publication Modern Machine Shop, and continues to contribute to MMS as a guest blogger.

Stephanie is a current co-ambassador for the Cincinnati chapter of Women in 3D Printing (Wi3DP). In 2019 she was named among Temboo’s 20 Women in Manufacturing That Are Influencing the Industry, and previously appeared in a panel discussion on “Digital Transformation: Gaining a Competitive Advantage with Data and Diversity” hosted by Women in Big Data at IMTS 2018.

Stephanie holds a B.A. in English literature and history from the University of Mount Union, as well as an M.A. in professional writing from the University of Cincinnati. She currently serves on the UC Professional Writing Advisory Board.

Stephanie is an avid runner, food enthusiast and sourdough baker. She lives in Ohio with her husband Paul and rescue cat Artemis.
