About me

Having spent over 20 years working in the field of sustainable development, Stephanie enjoys collaborating with purpose driven organizations with big dreams.

Stephanie has extensive international work experience in strengthening corporate performance through the lens of sustainability.  During her ten years with business leadership organizations, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the Brazilian Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEBDS), she had the privilege of working with leaders from a wide array of sectors to help transform the way in which business operates.

As the President of Jade Solutions, she employs the concepts of resiliency and sustainability to prepare her corporate clients to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. 

How I relate to the BJF

Stephanie felt immediately called when she learned about the BJF.  A firm believer in bringing back the wild as an essential step towards healing our relationship with the planet, she saw an exciting opportunity to be a part of a project that can help re-establish some balance in one of the most ecologically important places in the world.

She is particularly pleased to contribute to conservation in Brazil, a country that gave her so much.
