Born and raised in San Diego, California, Stacy is currently a full-time graduate student at the University of Delaware, pursing a Master’s in Public Administration with a concentration in Nonprofit Management. She also serves as a Graduate Research Assistant for the Institute for Public Administration where she holds the title of Teaching Assistant for the university’s undergraduate domestic study abroad program in Washington, D.C.
Prior to pursuing her Master’s degree, Stacy worked in both the healthcare and education fields. After working as a high school Spanish teacher, Stacy entered into healthcare as a Social Worker and Program Coordinator at Westside Family Healthcare and she later got her start at Christiana Care as a Spanish Medical Interpreter, where she combined her advanced-level Spanish speaking skills with her love for helping others. In 2011, Stacy took on a new challenge as Language Services Coordinator where she enjoyed varied responsibilities, successfully juggling the needs of two departments. Her most proud accomplishment is her work as the sole point person for LINCC (Language Interpreter Network at Christiana Care), a program that identifies and trains bilingual employees to provide competent language interpretation.
Stacy is not only a dedicated professional, but also a committed volunteer. Because of her exceptional service to the community, Stacy received the YMCA Black Achievers in Business and Industry Award in October of 2013. Stacy also uses her boundless energy for volunteering as an active member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Epsilon Rho Zeta chapter where she has served in many leadership roles both at the local and state level. When Stacy has free time, she likes to see a play, dabble in theater, or enjoy a fine dining experience.
