Have you ever met someone who is an absolute joy to be around, smiles a ton, works hard and is willing to help out in any way they can? How about all of these amazing things at once? This is exactly what it’s like working with Stephanie Lesar.
Originally from Colorado Springs, Steph came to Fort Collins to attend Colorado State University and become part of the Fort Collins’ community, all while staying close to her family.
“I just like the type of people that are around here” Steph exclaims, “and that’s actually what drew me to Trees, Water & People as well. Good people with a solid mission, that’s why I like to help out.”
And boy, does Steph help out. Starting out as a occasional volunteer, she quickly became a regular office volunteer, and then moved on to become one of our amazing marketing interns.
One of Steph’s favorite volunteer tasks is working on thank you letters. “It’s cool because it’s an easy way to help out, and I get see and be inspired by others contributions.” Steph also enjoys helping at special events like our annual fundraiser Rhythms for the Planet. “Events are super fun!” she told me.
We simply can’t thank Steph enough for her hard work and dedication to our mission!
