Stephanie Stone of San Pedro is the First Woman Appointed to the Los Angeles County Veterans’ Commission

Supervisor Don Knabe today announced that the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved his appointment of San Pedro resident Stephanie Stone to the Los Angeles County Veterans’ Advisory Commission.

Stone, who retired from the United States Navy in 1997 after 20 years of service, is currently the Program Director for the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Health Care Management and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

Stone works with a variety of groups including: the American Society for Public Administration, the Coro National Alumni Association and the San Pedro High School Booster Club. She was also asked to sit on the Los Angeles City Advisory Committee on Military and Veteran Affairs, and was elected chair in 2000.

Serving as the first woman on the Commission will be an honor which will not be lost on me, said Stone. My passion is not limited to but includes a focus on Women Veterans’ health care issues.

Stephanie has an incredible amount of knowledge and experience in dealing with Veteran issues, said Supervisor Knabe. I know she will be a valuable asset on the County’s Veterans Advisory Commission.
