Meet Stephanie East!
Stephanie East is a trainer and consultant specializing in CANS and Wraparound training. Stephanie has over fifteen years working in various roles in community-based settings with youth and families but it wasn’t until she was given the role as a care coordinator for a Wraparound program in Central California that she found her true passion. Stephanie is a California native, getting both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Criminology from Fresno State University.

Stephanie then completed her MSW from University of Southern California and began to work as a therapist who also sat on Wraparound teams.
