Stacy Fields (she/her), Director

Stacy, a native of Southern Oregon, has spent her entire life in the region, raising her two children alongside her spouse. One of her children experiences a disability, which has shaped Stacy’s perspective and fueled her passion for making a positive impact in the community.

Beyond her professional achievements, Stacy cherishes spending quality time with her family, tending to her garden, hosting gatherings, dancing, and bringing joy to others through her sense of humor. Her deep-rooted appreciation for community has led her to pursue this position, as she firmly believes that we are all stronger when we come together. Stacy eagerly looks forward to building meaningful relationships with individuals who experience disability, their families, and the community as a whole.
