Profile:

Carrie Stevenson is the Coastal Sustainability Agent for the UF/IFAS Escambia County Extension Office, and has been with the organization since 2003. Her educational outreach programs focus on living sustainably within a vulnerable coastal ecosystem. Her expertise and articles focus on climate issues, stormwater, hurricanes, native plants, and wetlands. Growing up an avid reader and science junkie, a young Carrie aspired to find a career that allowed her to “be outdoors and wear jeans,” and in college sought to become a science writer. Turns out, those skills were ideal for a career in Extension. A lifelong outdoors enthusiast, she enjoys biking, standup paddleboarding, and traveling to national parks with her family. Carrie earned her master’s degree in Biology/Coastal Zone Studies from the University of West Florida in Pensacola and an undergraduate degree in Marine Science from Samford University (Birmingham, Alabama). She is the proud mom of an Eagle Scout and leads her daughter’s Girl Scout troop. She is a Fellow in the Natural Resources Leadership Institute (NRLI), past president of the Florida Association of Natural Resource Extension Professionals (FANREP), and member of IMPACT 100 Pensacola Bay.
