At the ACLU of Oregon, Stacie is responsible for creatively communicating to our beloved community. She is an illustrator and business owner with a diverse professional background who enjoys using design to amplify community experience, create opportunities for learning, and activate people to take action. Stacie earned a Master of Public Health from OHSU, where she read a phrase that drives her approach to justice work still today: "...if we truly wish to reduce inequalities in health, we must address the social inequalities that so reliably produce them" (Link, 1996). To recharge, Stacie enjoys snuggles with their adopted Chihuhua-mix, Potato Chip, kayaking new waters, and making art.
