Project Manager | Menlo Park, California
Ms. Stenner, a geologist, has more than 19 years of experience helping communities understand and prepare for earthquakes and other natural hazards. Her work has included field investigations of 1) numerous destructive landslides following an earthquake in China (2008), 2) damaged agricultural infrastructure following an earthquake in Mexico (2010), and 3) extensive ground failures following an earthquake in Turkey (1999). Ms. Stenner has contributed to numerous failure analyses following damaging landslides in the USA. She has also performed detailed studies determining earthquake recurrence along faults that historically have produced large earthquakes in the USA, Mongolia, Argentina, and Mexico. Most recently, Ms. Stenner has worked with GeoHazards International on improving safety from landslides and earthquakes in western Nepal and for schools in Aizawl, India. She has worked with the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency to train organizations to be prepared for earthquakes by further developing their internal emergency training, planning, and exercise programs.
Ms. Stenner is a licensed professional geologist in California. She has an M.S. Geology (summa cum laude) from Arizona State University, and a B.S Geology from Washington State University. She has received awards for her work, including a certificate from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for leadership in earthquake readiness activities, Disaster Service Awards for volunteering with the American Red Cross, and from the U.S. Geological Survey for excellence in communications.
