Stephanie Puck
Executive Assistant

Stephanie Puck joined Education First in 2015 as an executive assistant and brings with her a uniquely developed executive support, project coordination and research skillset. She is an expert at learning new skills (from HTML to working on cars), tackling exhaustive research projects and analyzing methods to improve efficiency.

Prior to joining Education First, Stephanie spent several years working with executives of startups, nonprofits, and corporations based in Silicon Valley, Europe, and the Middle East. She provided clients with administrative support, website management, promotional product design, process improvement and much more. After, she then looked to combine her passion for societal change with her professional life by joining an organization that makes a difference in people’s lives. She believes in providing every student with a quality education and is dedicated to improving the efficiency of our current system through strategic planning, research and analysis, grant making effectiveness and advocacy.

Stephanie holds a bachelor’s degree in International Studies with a focus on Sociology, African Studies and Nonprofit Management from the University of California San Diego. She lives in California where she spends her free time working with rescued animals (everything from the typically endearing cats and dogs to the less typically endearing snakes and opossums), hiking, riding horses and pretty much anything else that involves being outdoors!
