This Erie, Pennsylvania transplant has worked with Gwinnett County since 2013 – first in Emergency 911 Communications as a dispatcher for three years and then in Quality of Life Code Enforcement for four. Stephanie joined the GC&B team in January 2020. Although she lived in Gwinnett County for 10 years, she has since moved to a farm in Walton County to pursue a sustainable lifestyle. She believes “zero waste” is a lifestyle choice we should all pursue – particularly when it comes to littering, landfills, recycling and living green. Any small changes in the way we live can potentially have a lasting impact on our environment. Her favorite aspect of the GC&B programs and events are the clean-ups. She finds it extremely gratifying to receive an email announcing that one of our groups picked up 29 bags of trash. Every bit helps and Stephanie feels that GC&B is fortunate enough to have a small army of folks out there who do this regularly. She is extremely thankful for GC&B volunteers and all the work they do – and loves that the GC&B team leads by example – often heading out to tackle an illegal dumping site – not afraid to get our hands dirty. She feels that the relationships GC&B is building with schools, corporate partners, civic groups, cities, neighborhoods, families and individuals is paramount to the organization’s mission and the future of Gwinnett.
