Marketing & Communications Director
Stacy joined the Sinai Akiba Academy team in 2018 bringing with her more than 15 years of experience in both marketing/communications and admission offices at independent schools. Her passion for independent schools comes from her own experiences as a graduate of an independent school, which drives her to constantly look for ways to improve not only the marketing and communications efforts at SAA but within the industry itself.
Having served at both boarding and day schools across the country, Stacy has led award-winning teams that have contributed positively to revenue generation initiatives at her schools. In addition to leading talented Marketing & Communications teams at Milken Community Schools in Los Angeles and Cheshire Academy in Connecticut, Stacy also served as a one-person communications department at Derby Academy in Massachusetts and Windward School in Los Angeles. In addition, she served as the Asst. Direct of Admission and Marketing at the MacDuffie School in Massachusetts and spent three years as the Associate Director of Admission at Chatham Hall, an all-girls boarding school in Virginia.
Stacy is known for presenting at conferences across the country, sharing what she has learned about building successful marketing and communications programs and leading successful teams. In fact, she previously led an award-winning Strategic Marketing & Communications team at a private boarding school in Connecticut, earning accolades for their Annual Fund Marketing Program (Silver Awards from CASE Circle of Excellence Award and CASE District 1 Award), their Alumni Magazine (GOLD inspirED School Marketers Brilliance Award), and Overall Team Development (Silver CASE Circle of Excellence Award), often competing against top colleges.
Stacy also writes about private school marketing and education for Blackbaud K-12 (where she has served as a K-12 Board Member) and other private school organizations. She holds a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College in Journalism and Design, an M.S. from Bay Path College in Communications and Information Management, a certificate in Marketing Strategy for Business Leaders from Cornell University, and several certifications from Hubspot Academy including social media and inbound marketing.
