"...I’m a retired electrical engineer and former Program Manager at Wang Laboratories...whether or not I had a job opening, if someone like Stephanie came looking for a job, I would find a way to hire her.
I have been working with Stephanie since 2014 on local and statewide sustainable, clean energy policy and legislation, educating communities in Southern New Hampshire to advocate for themselves and plan for their future. This work is ongoing, and I am certain that the organization Stephanie founded to facilitate this work, ECHO Action, has had a meaningful impact in the Monadnock Region, at the State Legislature and the Public Utilities Commission.
Stephanie handles all the media, graphics, communications and social media for ECHO Action. Her campaigns have led to dozens to hundreds of people showing up to demonstrate, write or call legislators or offer testimony on bills that impact our clean energy future.
Her background in environmental education makes her the ideal person to educate at workshops and to train and coordinate volunteers, as she makes information easy to quickly process, increasing their involvement. She is a great teacher with an enthusiastic presence and a joy to work with as part of a team...
To me, one of the most impressive aspects of Stephanie’s work with ECHO Action is that she has performed volunteer community work in a professional manner, treating her work as a full time job, putting in long hours. I often ask her where she gets her energy from! She has greatly expanded her knowledge and recently told me she feels like she’s earned a second master’s degree.
She keeps her teaching skills up-to-date as a guest lecturer for environmental, activism and journalism classes at Keene State College, as well as speaking at meetings and conferences locally and as a delegate in Washington D.C. at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission hearings."
