Bio

As an occupational therapist and certified hand therapist at OrthoCarolina, Stacy has had the opportunity to grow in both leadership and clinical positions.  She currently serves as the Occupational/Hand Therapy Fellowship Coordinator and is a team member of both the Amputee and Brachial Plexus Specialty Clinics. She loves to be active both indoors and out and enjoys all things fitness: running, hiking, biking, strength training & yoga.

FUN FACT: She entered her first competitive sports event at age 11 and won a 10- speed bike for my efforts; riding the most miles and raising the most funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Bike a Thon.  This started a lifelong quest for health and fitness.
