Stephanie Wentworth
Administrative Assistant

Stephanie is our Administrative Assistant for the BGCNC.  She grew up in the area and graduated from White Mountains Regional High School. After high school she attended Keene State College where she studied social sciences like psychology. Over the last several years she has moved all over – living in sunny Florida for a few years, and then Massachusetts the last 3 years working for various property management companies. She decided to relocate back “home” last fall – as she felt the mountains were calling and it was time to be close to family again. Her black Labrador retriever named Winston goes everywhere with her including the Club! In her free time she loves to be outdoors, and go fishing, camping, and hiking.
