VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH

STEPHANIE SALTER

The Desert Art Center is pleased to announce that Stephanie Salter is our Volunteer of the Month! Stephanie is an amazing photographer and woman dedicated to helping and improving the lives of others with sparkling energy and kindness.

A cardiac nurse, Stephanie is one of six nurses who co-founded the Open Heart Unit at Desert Hospital and later the Trauma Unit. Still active though retired, Stephanie does pro bono nursing care and advocacy for nurses.

Stephanie and her husband David are avid environmentalists and photographers, traveling over 130,000 miles across the U.S. and Canada on a Gold Wing motorcycle, documenting the majesties of nature in their photography.

Be sure to check out Stephanie’s inspiring work and, if you’re lucky, you may find her dashing around taking care of whatever needs it.
