Stephanie joined the NH Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI) in March 2018 to help support the Municipal and Regional Assistance program. She is originally from the Capital District region of New York and moved to Meredith NH in July of 1999. Stephanie has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Marywood University in Scranton, PA and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Environmental Science with a concentration in Natural Resource Planning and Management from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Stephanie has been active in the New Hampshire planning community, as a member of the American Planning Association (APA) the Northern New England Chapter of the American Planning Association (NNECAPA) and the New Hampshire Planners Association (NHPA).

Stephanie began her municipal career with the City of Laconia (2001- 2003) and then in Alton (2003 – 2005), Gilford (2005 – 2011), and most recently as the Town Planner for Pembroke (January 2012-March 2018). Stephanie was a member of the Alton Planning Board and served as the Municipal Representative on the TAC for LRPC and CNHRPC. Stephanie has been the Administrative and Technical Assistant for Planning Boards, Zoning Boards, Conservation Commissions, and a Historic District and Heritage Commission before becoming the Town Planner for Pembroke. Having land use experience working in different municipalities, counties, and regions, Stephanie believes her new role as Principal Planner for OSI will be a great fit and is excited about this position.

Stephanie has two Jack Russell Terriers named Jerry and Eagan and a two year old German Shephard Dog named “New Skete’s Sinatra’s Maggio” aka “Maggio”. Maggio is classified as an “Owner Trained Service Dog” as Stephanie did all of his training with professional help from Mike Robertson of White Mountain College for Pets in Plymouth NH. Maggio accompanies her to work and he even has attended a few planning conferences. Stephanie enjoys her free time with her dogs, especially being in the woods with them on a “pack walk”. On the weekends, if Stephanie is not in the woods with her dogs, she is usually visiting family in New York’s Capital District or her boyfriend Gill in upstate New York.
