City of Newton
Board Term 2020 -2023
Jennifer Steel is currently the Chief Environmental Planner for the City of Newton and an MACC board member. After graduating from Wesleyan University she taught for several years. After getting a Master’s degree from Duke University, she worked with EPA and NOAA on large-scale marine research and management programs and with Mass Audubon’s Advocacy Department. But it is the role of Conservation Agent where she found her niche: where natural resource regulation and education converge. She has been a Conservation Agent for roughly 20 years, serving the municipalities of Maynard, Framingham, Uxbridge, and Newton. She is an eager biker, hiker, and Ultimate Frisbee player.
