Summit Steward Coordinator
Stephanie joined Friends of Acadia seasonally as a Cadillac Summit Steward in 2016. In 2017, she was promoted to the coordinator position when the Summit Steward and Ridge Runner programs merged. Stephanie coordinates with multiple park divisions to assist staff in protecting Acadia and educating visitors on Leave No Trace principles. One of her favorite perks of the job is meeting visitors from all over the world on top of Cadillac Mountain.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Forest Resources and Conservation from the University of Florida, Stephanie began her career at the Florida Forest Service. Before settling in Maine, she lived in Flagstaff, AZ, where she worked at Walnut Canyon National Monument. Stephanie never tires of hiking and kayaking in Acadia, but in winter she often travels internationally and to visit family.
