Stephanie Robinson joined the Washington Water Trust in 2022. She grew up on the Puget Sound, inspired by the relationship between healthy waters, farms, and communities. She graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a B.A. in Environmental Studies where she focused on watershed studies and a B.M.A. in Piano. After graduation, she explored Southwest Montana as a horse wrangler, working throughout the Gallatin Watershed with both ranchers and the US Forest Service. She returned to the Puget Sound area to pursue habitat restoration projects on the county, state, and federal levels, gaining experience in planning, research, and outreach for projects, noxious weed removal, water quality testing, stormwater, and restoration plantings. Most recently, she worked for the Department of Ecology as a crew supervisor for the Washington Conservation Corps, collaborating on habitat restoration projects for King County including the Lones Levee Setback and Floodplain Restoration Project on the Green River.
Stephanie values her place in the farm and agriculture world, helping tend to organic farms in the Puyallup-White Watershed, and working for and managing horse farms on the Enumclaw Plateau. Rain or shine, you can find Stephanie out grubbing blackberry from her horse’s pasture, racing sailboats, exploring a secluded beach, scouring the mountains for wildflowers, or attempting to stay on her mountain bike. Her big dog, Finn, is always nearby!
