Stephanie has had a lifelong interest in health and nutrition. After nursing school she started a degree in holistic nutrition and when children entered the picture, was determined to healthily feed her growing family. This passion, combined with an increased understanding of environmental concerns, led her to search out local farmers to meet their family’s needs. For the past 7 years she’s actively organized cooperative purchases with friends, enjoyed the bounty of CSAs, gardened, preserved, and drove all over Chicagoland sourcing dairy, eggs & meat. Shortly before moving to Lombard in 2012, she learned about the Prairie Food Co-op initiative and immediately volunteered in hopes of making this dream a reality. Stephanie is serving a 3-year term.
