Steve grew up in the North Country, surrounded by the Great North Woods and the White Mountains. There, he discovered his passion for the outdoors and the natural beauty of New Hampshire. He earned a B.S. in forest science from the University of New Hampshire and a Masters of Forestry from Yale University.
As the Cheshire County Extension Forester for the UNH Cooperative Extension, it is his responsibility to educate forestland owners about their important role as stewards of the forest. Steve currently serves on the New Hampshire Forester Licensing Board, is the Educational Coordinator for the Granite State Division of the Society of American Foresters, and is one of the founding board members of the Glass Museum, a non-profit arts and music organization in Peterborough.
Steve and his wife Rachelle Beaudoin live in Peterborough with their dog, Theo.
