Wondercide founder and CEO, Stephanie Boone, is honored to be named a finalist for the Austin Business Journal’s 2016 Profiles in Power award. The award recognizes women in Central Texas for their contributions to the next generation of female business leaders and their communities. In addition to her work formulating non-toxic alternatives to chemical pesticides used on pets, people and property, Boone gives back to her community in countless ways.
As one of just two women on the board of ARMA (Austin Regional Manufacturers Association), she works toward the continued growth of Austin’s manufacturing industry through advocacy, workforce development, mentorship and networking initiatives. Additionally, she served as a judge for Philanthropitch 2016, wherein over $140,000 were donated to local non-profits. In the same fashion, Boone served as a judge for the Austin GSEA (Global Student Entrepreneurs Awards) Competition 2016, supporting young entrepreneurs in their business endeavors.
She can be found giving back to the Austin community and beyond through volunteer partnerships with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Austin Pets Alive!, Austin Dog Alliance. Under Boone’s leadership, Wondercide is proud to offer discounted pricing to local animal shelter staff and volunteers, as well as non-profit rescues and shelters as a small token of thanks for their contributions to pets everywhere.
Six winners of the 2016 Profiles in Power award will be announced on September 29, 2016.
