About Angela Stebbins, New Hampshire State Parks Intern
My name is Angela and I am a ‘forty-something’ wife and mother of three children. I am also a small business owner, and I am a member of the NH Air National Guard as a ‘traditional guardsman’ which means I serve one weekend a month, two weeks a year. Currently, I am also a full time college student, taking advantage of my military educational benefits to finish my degree.
My husband and I run our family business together, a used car sales and service dealership in Winchester NH, and we own two rental properties as part of our business as well.
I have served for over twelve years in the Air Force and love every minute of it, as well as all of the great adventures it has brought me on. For most of my time in the Air Force I have been a journalist, writing for the base newspaper, and a quarterly magazine published for airmen and their families. In addition to writing, I have also been able to study and do military photojournalism, and that has led me into a love of photography.
I also served on an active duty tour with the NH National Guards Counterdrug Task Force in 2010, a division that works in our own state to help fight the war on drugs at the local level. I specialized in the prevention field working with youth, and was able to teach a drug prevention program at two NH middle schools as part of this program. I loved this job for what it taught me, and allowed me to help teach our area youth. I enjoy this type of work so much, I have volunteered in my community on a substance abuse prevention coalition for four years now.
I am finishing my degree program at Keene State College, NH for a dual degree with a BA in Journalism and a BS in Substance Abuse Prevention, finally taking advantage of the military education benefits to continue my education and pull together my two passions into a formal degree to help me continue in the field of substance abuse prevention.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to do this blog and share a bit of my life and passions with you all.
Until next time…
Live, love, and laughter,
