Stacey’s love of basketball started at 6 years old when she saw her first New York Knicks game on tv. From then on she played and observed the game every chance she got. In high school, she was senior captain of the Trumbull Eagles and also played for the CT Breeze AAU organization.
Knowing she couldn’t stay away from game she loved, Stacey became involved with the University of Connecticut’s storied women’s basketball program as a student manager, ultimately becoming a head manager her senior year, and earned a degree in Coaching and Administration. Upon graduation, she was hired as a Graduate Extern/Video Coordinator for the Temple University Women’s Basketball program. After two years at Temple, she completed a master’s degree in Sport and Recreation Administration and was promoted to Director of Basketball Operations for the team, a position she held for six years.
Since 2016 Stacey has been the Associate Athletic Director at St Joseph High School in Trumbull. In this capacity she works with all of the athletic department’s 30 sport programs. Since 2020, Stacey has also been a regular contributor to The Untitled Podcast, a podcast showcasing women in sports. Being able to make an impact on young athletes is truly a rewarding experience.
