About Stephanie

Stephanie Webb, Director of Policy Internship Programs, most enjoys giving back to an experience that shaped the direction of her own life. As an undergraduate at Texas A&M, pursuing a dual major in animal science and agricultural communication and journalism, Stephanie completed two policy internships herself – in Washington, D.C. with Congressman Rubén Hinojosa (2006) and in Austin, TX with Representative Robby Cook (2007). After graduating in 2007, she went on to obtain a Master of Public Service and Administration at the Bush School of Government and Public Service. Immediately following her master’s program, Stephanie moved to Orlando, Florida where she served as the manager of employee communications at one of the largest community colleges in the nation. She is excited to be back at Texas A&M and for the opportunity to help students identify personal and professional goals.
