Miss Nevada USA – Josie


Josie Nicole Stephens, 28, was originally born in Lafayette Louisiana, now residing in Fallon Nevada. She was born a third-generation oil field worker, but she is the only female and one of only 3% of women in her field! As a chemical account manager on a Shell offshore oil & gas platform she works closely with the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure clean production. Her mission is to encourage women to pursue STEM and male dominated fields. Josie has a bachelor’s in chemical engineering and minors in mathematics, chemistry, and bio-processing engineering. When she’s not in the Gulf of Mexico she is advocating for the destigmatization of mental health, having a #5daystoSave initiative to educate our youth and provide them with the resources to nurture their mental health. Josie considers herself a bookworm and has a home library with over 300 books!
