Deacon Stacey spent the first half of her life traveling with her family. She was baptized in an Episcopal Church in Montreal, Canada and confirmed in Hawaii in the Church of the Epiphany. She started first grade in France and graduated high school in Germany. She came to Florida after graduating nursing school. As a member of Holy Trinity since the 80’s, she has served as an Acolyte, a Lay Eucharistic Minister and a Lay Eucharistic Visitor. Stacey was ordained as a Deacon in 2006.

She has worked in many different areas of nursing including Infection Control, Health First Stroke Coordinator, and most recently as a Professional Development Specialist at the Health First Center for Learning. Her passion has always been a ministry to the elderly.
