Stephanie Adams


My role is mainly undertaking parks user surveys using the Yardstick Parks Survey tool for local government clients. My training and experience is in the area of performance in musical theatre so I’m well versed in communication skills. I have a passion for the outdoors and the public parks of Melbourne especially. I’ve developed strong communication skills from working with diverse professionals, enhancing our team’s collaboration.  I’m excited to be part of the Xyst team.
