Stephanie Frommer

Senior Director of Operations

Stephanie Frommer joined the Humane Rescue Alliance in 2018 as Senior Director of Operations, responsible for leading the adoptions, transport, and animal care departments at both locations. She got her start in sheltering quite by accident at the age of 16 with a part-time job at a local cat shelter, and thus began a career spanning more than 30 years working with animals and their people. Before coming to HRA, Steph worked in shelter operations and field services at the Upper Valley Humane Society and Monadnock Humane Society in New Hampshire and the Massachusetts SPCA. She served on the board of the New England Federation of Humane Societies for 21 years and her home town’s Animal Control Commission for more than 10.
A member of Tufts Veterinary School’s Center for Animals Master’s Program’s inaugural class, Stephanie holds an MS in Animals and Public Policy. Her master’s thesis was published in Animals in Society in 1999.
A life-long New Englander, Stephanie recently relocated to the area with her partner, Eric, and their two cats, three dogs, and two bearded dragons.
