Kate Stacy

Kate was born and raised in St. Louis and graduated from Washington University with a bachelor's degree in Political Science. She spent the next 8 years on the East Coast serving in various government positions where she met her husband Adam. They were married in 2011 and following the birth of their boy/girl twins in 2014, they moved to St. Louis to be closer to family. In 2015 they welcomed a 3rd daughter who was born with a complex congenital heart defect and would need life saving open heart surgery at 2 days old, 4 months old and again at 3 years old. Today she works for the The Ollie Hinkle Heart Foundation as the Outreach and Community Partnership Manager, helping heart families like her own and championing the future of pediatric heart care. She loves cold brew and chardonnay, is always listening to a podcast and can often be seen walking the streets of Kirkwood with her very naugty goldendoodle puppy.
