Lutheran Family Services
Children's Clinical Education and Training Coordinator


Stacy is the Children's Clinical Education and Training Coordinator for Lutheran Family Services. She specializes in adoption, kinship, and foster care related issues and concerns, helping caregivers and professionals expand their capabilities to help society's most vulnerable children and families. She is a trainer for the nationally accredited Training for Adoption Competency (TAC) program, Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) practitioner, and Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator. Stacy received her master's in social work from the University of Denver and holds a certificate in Animal-Assisted Social Work. After moving back to her home state, she started working in post adoption and has since continued working within the entire adoption kinship network! Stacy's unique tie to adoption and foster care have provided her with the experience and compassion needed to support Nebraska's adoptive and foster families and her education and training enables her to provide professionals with the knowledge and skills to better support vulnerable families and be proactive in their care. When not spending time with her family Stacy can be found playing with her retired therapy dog, Bosley, "training" her rabbit, Lucy, or chancing her parakeets, Boomer and Myrtle, around the house!
