Stephanie Klein, Program Coordinator
Ms. Klein has a BA in Political Science from UMBC and is completing her MA in Peace and Conflict Management from the University of Haifa, Israel. She has been a mediator since 2010, when she joined the MCRC volunteer mediator roster. Ms. Klein has since trained in several specialty forms of mediation -- including Restorative Reflections/Dialogues, Prisoner Re-entry, and Restorative Circles -- in order to serve the needs of the Howard County community. In 2014, she accepted her current position as Program Coordinator and oversees the intake and management of all MCRC cases, coordinates its diverse and extensive group of volunteer mediators, and maintains the MCRC website.
Ms. Klein is an avid reader and frequent patron of the Howard County Library System. She eagerly awaits the reopening of the Savage branch, currently under renovation.
