Stephanie Older

Stephanie Older started a brand new job 2 weeks ago as the communications director for the Nat’l Institute of General Medical Sciences (also part of NIH). She is so excited to return to NIDA for her 9th Chat Day! Since 2008, Stephanie worked in NIDA’s Public Information and Liaison Branch (aka “communications office”) doing everything from press, social media, content review and contract management. When she’s not working, Stephanie is a chauffeur for her 9-year-old son Owen and 6-year-old daughter Tessa. On the rare occasion when she is not working or shuttling, Stephanie enjoys reading all kinds of books, working out, hiking, traveling and trying out new recipes.
