It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and feel bound by the limits of this human life. Loss, trauma, illness or poverty can impact a person so much that they can get caught up in an endless cycle of suffering. This is when we need something to help us break through and push us towards a better way of life. This is when we need music. Stacey’s passion is to bring new possibilities and hope to those in need with community music programs.
Stacey is a native of Clay County, Illinois and has spent much of her life pursuing music and personal development. As a board-certified music therapist, she combines both of these interests to provide life-changing experiences for those in her community.
She is the founder of Tri-Music, a not-for-profit organization which raises the standard of living for people in her area through the development of music education, music therapy, and music entertainment programs. Stacey is a monthly columnist for Owl Creek Gazette and also expresses herself through singing and songwriting. Recently she has enjoyed performing with her band mates from Local Honey.
Stacey is grateful for the chance to partner with community organizations like schools, healthcare agencies, and local businesses. Her #1 inspiration is her students, who continue to show a willingness towards growing and learning through music and who keep her connected to the greater mission of social justice through healthcare and education for all.
