Stacy has been influential in so many respects. She has dedicated hundreds, maybe thousands, of hours to the community, whether organizing the Race for the Cure, distributing food during disasters, or supporting the arts. She was a key player in Care and Share’s involvement in the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest fires disaster relief efforts. She worked hard to implement Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Institutes’s Wheel to Reel event. She has been instrumental in Care and Share’s ability to get more food to more people in more places by raising more food, friends, and funds than ever before.
She has a servant’s heart, many times putting the needs of others before her own. To her, philanthropy is not “just a job.” She takes the greater mission onto her shoulders and truly dedicates her time and talents to ensure that the needs of the community are met. Beyond her strong administrative skills, it’s really the essence of who she is that is so impressive. Generous, thoughtful, kind and fiercely loyal. She’s the one to have in your corner during a crisis.
She has an enormous, seemingly endless capacity to make everyone in her life, both personally and professionally, feel important, valued and appreciated. This talent equates to life-long friends and long-term staff members, donors and volunteers. Stacy also has an amazing ability to identify strengths in those she works with, both volunteers and staff members, and find ways to put those talents to the best use. In her words, she loves to see the right people in the right seats on the bus.
She is currently working to build Goal Zero Recycling, a for-profit arm of Care and Share, that will offer recycling solutions to local businesses. Profits made through Goal Zero will be used to fuel the mission of Care and Share. Ensuring a sustainable source of revenue for Care and Share is very important to Stacy.
Her belief that no one should go hungry is the driving force behind her immensely strong work ethic and dedication to the organization. She has poured countless hours into the GoalZero business plan and cultivation of key partnerships and relationships, laying a strong foundation for its future success. Once GoalZero comes to fruition, this will be a very significant professional accomplishment that will help to change the landscape of Southern Colorado.
In a world where individuals are becoming isolated through the use of technology and the busyness of life, she is a champion for the importance of human connection.
Congratulations, Stacy. Well deserved!!!
