Regional Director’s Message

Dear Friends,


I would like to start out by welcoming Stephanie Pommier, our new regional director for the Upper Midwest region.  Stephanie has experience leading a development department and coordinating various fund development, communication and marketing initiatives.  She began her career with the Girls Scouts and grew with them for the next six years.  She left to be the development officer with the University of Minnesota and then moved on the Humane Society for the next two years.  The Girls Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys then recruited her back as their VP of Individual Giving and Alumnae Relations where she has been for the past six years.


Stephanie is passionate about our mission and is looking forward to meeting all of you.  Please feel free to reach out to her and introduce yourself.  She loves to hear how people are connected to our mission and kids.  She can be reached at 651-560-7106 or spommier@nphusa.org.


We are in our busy season and are overjoyed to have another set of hands helping us.  We’d love to see you at one of our upcoming events.
