Hello, I'm Stephanie Jackson. I am Tódich’ii’nii, Bitterwater clan born for Kinłichíí’nii, Red House clan, my maternal grandfather is Bilagáana, Anglo and my paternal grandfather is Honágháahnii, One-walks-around clan (In the Navajo culture we introduce ourselves with our clans first because you might find others with the same clan and have family where ever you go). I am originally from Tuba City, a town on the Navajo Reservation, but currently live in Flagstaff, Arizona. I was raised by a single-mother who taught me to be an independent, strong, hardworking woman with a big interest in science. In high school I fell in love with research biology and that sealed the deal as to what I would study in college. With a Bachelors in Environmental Science and a Masters in Climate Science and Solutions I've found my purpose in life as an educator. In the classroom, on the river, in the southwest, I am able to share my knowledge as a Navajo woman, a scientist, a river guide, and as a lover of the outdoor world. A few of my favorite things in life: coffee, art, the color green, cooking, gardening, and unicorns. I feel privileged and blessed to work with an amazing organization like No Barriers and am excited to meet you on my next expedition!
