Yellowstone Program Assistant
Stephanie comes to EPI with a rich field research and service background, from invasive species management in Virginia to monitoring marbled murrelets in the California redwoods. She has a B.A. in Biology and Environmental Studies and membership in the national research honor society, Sigma Xi, as well as carrying a number of certifications, from Wildland Firefighter to Wilderness First Aid. Stephanie has also worked in environmental education, and she recognizes the vital role experiential learning can have on children and teens' perspective. She is excited to help provide a safe and fun environment for EPI students to actively participate in conservation efforts. In her free time, she enjoys being outside as much as possible, and as she most recently lived in the snow-limited states of Virginia and California, she looks forward to learning how to ski, snowshoe, and snowboard in Montana. Her most favorite outdoor activity is camping with her adventure cat, Ziggy Stardust.
