Development & Administrative Manager
Los Angeles Office

Why I Do What I Do:

“I know that I am fortunate, I had amazing role models who instilled in me a strong commitment to education. At the age of six, I knew I was going to go to college. Not going wasn’t even a consideration. It is for those students who don’t have the network of support that I had that I do this work.”

Alma Mater(s): University of Georgia and Loyola Marymount University

Your role in one sentence: Ensuring the Campaign’s work is sustainable.

When I am not at work helping students get to and succeed in college I am…practicing and teaching yoga, reading, and watching horror films.

If not higher education then what cause? Gender equality and ethnic diversity

Formal Bio:

As the Development and Administrative Manager for The Campaign for College Opportunity, Stacey manages the daily operations of the Sacramento and Los Angeles offices. She is responsible for grant research, composing grant proposals and grant reports, as well as donor communications, and all financial aspects of the organization.

Prior to joining the Campaign for College Opportunity, Stacey served as Administrative Analyst II for the City of Burbank’s busy Public Works Field Services Division for over seven years where she managed grant funding for several large projects and administered the department’s multi-million dollar operating budget. Her desire to make a greater impact in improving the lives of her fellow Californians and her years of experience in grant management and budgeting brought Stacey to the Campaign.

Stacey grew up in Indiana and Georgia and received her BA in Journalism from the University of Georgia at Athens. She moved to Los Angeles in 1994 to attend Loyola Marymount University where she obtained an MFA in Television Production. As the granddaughter of an art professor and a kindergarten teacher, she believes education is the key to developing successful futures and access to college should be available to all who seek it. Stacey is proud to be a member of The Campaign for College Opportunity team.
