About Stacy

At age 22 Stacy held her grandfather’s hand as he died from cancer. More than a decade later, she began helping her grandmother with the health issues, appointments, procedures, and hospitalizations that can come with late age. Her grandmother had set a wonderful example caring for her grandfather.

For more than 10 years Stacy has spent hundreds of hours sitting bedside in hospitals, accompanying loved ones to medical appointments, and providing care coordination. Stacy has helped family and friends journey through a range of medical diagnoses and helped them discuss their concerns, questions, and decisions with their doctors.

When she has observed substandard care or mistreatment, Stacy has spoken up, met with administrators, and made formal written complaints that resulted in disciplinary actions or changes in training and procedures.

In 2019, Stacy formalized her years of experience by becoming a Board-Certified Patient Advocate and focused her decades of education toward helping others in need through StacyCares Oklahoma, LLC.
