Stacy’s dedication to the Florida Network and the children and families we serve is truly inspiring. We are proud to be represented by such a hard working and influential woman.

“Stacy has an unwavering commitment to justice and respect for all the people she works on behalf of – as well as for the folks she works for and with – to make life better for those she serves,” said Dominic Calabro, president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch and immediate past chairman of the Florida Network board of directors. “Stacy is very bright, highly dedicated, caring, focused and an effective leader.”

Stacy has served the Florida Network as president and CEO since 2010. She began her career in 1990 as a counselor and youth care worker at Arnette House in Ocala, Florida.
