David’s talk, Why we are so bad at doing good, inspired her to reflect on how she could use her fundraising skills to achieve more impact.

Q&A with Stacy
Q: If you could choose anyone famous (real or fictional) to have dinner with who would they be and why?
I would have as long a dinner as possible with my late mom, Caroline, and ask her all of the questions I neglected to ask when she was alive.
Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An emergency room doctor, and I still do!
Q: If a movie was made of your life what genre would it be, who would play you?
It’s been said I was born too late, so the movie of my life would be a historical drama with Zooey Deschanel.
