Stephanie Coburn and her husband Jerald run a farm with grass fed beef and a big garden. They raised three wonderful children there, where they learned the value of doing work that you can put your heart into and believe in. One daughter lives in Vancouver, the other in Nanaimo. Their son has come back home from Montreal, and has started a farming business and a family just up the road.
Stephanie joined the Green Party after reading Vision Green for the first time in 2007. She had never found a political platform that so echoed her own ethical and practical interests until that moment. Then in 2008, she worked with others to form the New Brunswick Green Party, and has been on Provincial Council since. She ran Federally in 2011 and 2015, and Provincially in 2010 and 2014. She has also been on the Board of the Conservation Council of New Brunswick since 1999, the majority as their President.
Stephanie has served on Federal Council as the New Brunswick Representative since 2015.
