Stacey Rafalowski

Director of Programs

With ten years of experience in science education and marine science in the Charleston, SC, region, Stacey Rafalowski has invested a career in improving the way learning happens. Prior to joining EarthEcho International, she devoted six years with a national nonprofit organization that is focused on building school and community support around innovative programs that integrate environmental education, civic agency, and service-learning. She continues to build networks of support for formal and informal educators to enhance learning strategies around STEM education. Stacey began her work with educators while working on her graduate degree in Marine Biology at College of Charleston. A National Science Foundation GK-12 teaching fellowship launched her journey in education by allowing her the opportunity to partner with classroom teachers for three years, building curriculum that brought marine science to life for young people. Since that time, Stacey has been active in community efforts around sustainability, serving multiple years on a variety of community and event boards.
