Stacy Sternberg believes that life experience forms a person, and her path to becoming the Communications Coordinator for The Patterson Foundation (TPF) is anything but linear. She also believes that things happen for a reason so, when she decided to move back to Sarasota, the timing for TPF's call for a Communications Coordinator was serendipitous. Stacy is responsible for executing strategies that maximize communications opportunities for TPF including website updates, newsletters, support for social media efforts, and support for other public-focusing activities.
Stacy holds a BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design and a MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Upon graduation, she traveled to New Delhi, India, for a three-month art residency at Global Arts Village. After completion, she spent a brief time in the United States working for William Massie Architecture before traveling to Mustique, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. In Mustique, she worked as a sculptor, fabricator, and liaison for both William Massie Architecture and Sutherland Studios for almost four years. As she evolved, her passions grew to include the digital world as a creative outlet. In 2011, Stacy returned to the United States where she interned with Andre Freiats at AFX Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, and simultaneously studied digital programs. In 2013, Stacy was introduced to the nonprofit world at Home of New Vision in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she learned to bridge her creativity with social good.
Stacy is interested in many things, but most currently she is re-exploring the head casting process to create a bronze bust, practicing mindfulness, and working on her cast iron balloon animals from the iron pour she attended in November 2016.
