Title: Faculty, Gift of Life Institute

Years in Healthcare Field: 20+

Professional Background: Stacey has spent the last 20 years of her professional career helping to advance organ and tissue donation. She was with Indiana Donor Network (formerly Indiana Organ Procurement) for  11 years, serving as both Manager of Family Services and as a Family Services Coordinator. As Manager of Family Services, Stacey was responsible for administering and coordinating activities of the Family Services department to provide exceptional customer service for donor families and professional partners in order to maximize donation outcomes.

Inspiration for Staying in Field: My inspiration for staying in the field is knowing that every day, every hour, every minute that I contribute to my job is part of making a miracle happen…not a job but a privilege!

Advice to New OPO Staff: Every day is an adventure and presents new challenges, but the reward is endless.

Tell Us Something We Don’t Know About You: I am newly married. I married my best friend, and love of my life, Dr. Clark Simons.  This love story is extremely special, because he was the physician of a potential donor that I was evaluating.
