Co-op Community Champion: Stephanie Walsh

This Month’s Co-op Community Champion is local women’s outreach worker Stephanie Walsh.

Co-op highlights people in Fort St. John who should be recognized for their work in the community. Anyone looking to nominate a community-minded person in need of recognition, head to Energeticcity’s website.

Inside and outside her career, Walsh has always wanted to help people the best she can.

Her resume reflects that as she has worked as a care worker for disabled adults and senior citizens.

Now, as an outreach worker, Walsh helps females facing any type of abuse.

She then helps provide transportation to women needing to attend appointments for medical, legal, or social services and secure housing and employment.

Before being hired as an outreach worker three years ago, Stephanie also went to school to become an early childhood educator assistant, which she eventually decided wasn’t what she wanted to do.

Walsh says her philanthropic ways come from her father.

“He’s retired and still volunteers, like every day, for a shelter in Ontario. I’m so much like him,” said Walsh.

Walsh is also an animal lover and makes sure to help out the SPCA whenever she can.

Every month, she makes sure the money she receives from recycling her bottles goes to the shelter. Several years ago, she also held a garage sale for the local SPCA during a storm and still raised around $260.

At Christmas time, Walsh and her daughter also deliver cards to random house showing their holiday spirit, thanking them.

Walsh moved to Fort St. John 12 years ago with her husband.
