Stephanie Touzalin received her Bachelors of Science in Natural Resources and Environmental Science, with a focus in Fish and Wildlife Ecology, from the University of Illinois in Champaign in 2004 and quickly became involved with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County. As an Animal Care volunteer, she got to spend time at Willowbrook preparing diets and care for the rehabilitation and resident wildlife. Once on staff, Stephanie worked at the front desk admitting some of the over 8,000 animals Willowbrook treats each year and helping residents to live more harmoniously with their wildlife neighbors. Since 2010, Stephanie has been in her current role as one of the Naturalists that make up Willowbrook's education team. While developing and teaching programs, leading Wildlife Explorers Summer Camp, managing Willowbrook's social media, and interacting with visitors are a large part of her responsibilities, Stephanie also gets to spend time working with the raptors and other animal educators at Willowbrook. While birds, especially birds of prey, are a particular favorite focus, Stephanie has been working on her insect and plant identification and as well as developing taxidermy skills. She has also been able to use her past education and experience in the fine arts to paint several different projects for Willowbrook's fundraising efforts.
