Area E Alternate, Stephanie Grindon
Regional Districts have a unique position called “Alternate Director”. Alternates are appointed by each Director and are sworn into office so that they can participate in and vote at meetings when the Director is absent.
Stephanie Grindon grew up in the Fraser Valley and has a BA from SFU. She has lived on the Coast since 1995 (in Elphinstone since 2002) and she was very pleased to raise her daughter, Taysha, in this community.
A passionate gardener, Stephanie has run an organic landscaping company called BioScapes Gardening for the past ten years. She has pursued education in Permaculture and is involved in local farming. Her many volunteer activities have included the SC Peace Group, One Straw, and the SC Conservation Association, and she was a founding Board Member, Parent and Teacher at Sun Haven Waldorf School. She also has a keen interest in politics and is taking this opportunity to learn the working of regional government.
