Her work as a coach combines her practice as a licensed psychologist and her own experience as an executive. Previously, Stacey was the head of Deloitte’s Leadership practice where she guided the firm’s work with clients on matters of succession, talent assessment, leadership development, and inclusion. While there she increased revenue for her practice over 250% and tripled the size of her organization in under three years. Prior to Deloitte, Stacey worked as Managing Partner for a high growth boutique consultancy where she was responsible for setting the firm’s strategy and market positioning.
Stacey is a regular speaker at conferences and executive retreats on how companies can navigate the political aspects of succession planning and more accurately identify high performing leaders to improve inclusion. She is the author of several articles, including: “A Data-Driven Approach to Identifying Future Leaders” (MIT Sloan Management Review), “Transition Support Best Practices” (The Pfeiffer Annual Leadership Development series), and “Transforming Teams: A Personal and Team Development Approach” (Developing High-Performance Work Teams).
Stacey graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in psychology from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and received her doctorate in Organizational Psychology from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Her doctoral research explored how early family experiences influence women’s career expectations and selection of work roles. Stacey lived and studied in both London, England and Osaka, Japan.
Originally from California, Stacey now resides in Haddonfield, New Jersey with her husband, two children, and a very friendly retriever.
