Leadership Team

Leadership is about service to the community. While the magic of our mentoring happens in the forest, there is a team of servant leaders that work behind the screens to bring the magic of our programs to kids and our communities.  Those leaders work with parents, our staff team, board members, and elders to co-create the mission of Two Coyotes.

Stephanie Niles

Program Director

Steph’s love of nature stemmed from countless hours spent in the woods as a child growing up in CT and her deep connection to the wilderness as a young adult living in North Carolina, South Carolina and the high desert of southern Utah. She is now mom to three little environmentalists and teaches art in the home school community. Steph holds an art degree from the University of South Carolina where she focused in art education and photography. Stephanie works behind the scenes to help connect families to nature and keep the programs staffed and running smoothly.
