Stacey Foster has joined Parkinson’s NSW in the role of Support Group Coordinator.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Sports Management degree, Stacey decided to pursue a career in the not-for-profit healthcare sector.
She began with a four-year stint at Cerebral Palsy Alliance, working as Sport Development Coordinator – a role which involved providing sport and recreation options for children and adults of all abilities.
Stacey then moved to One Disease Limited, an organisation committed to eliminating crusted scabies as a public health concern in Australia. She worked there for five years in a series of increasingly senior roles, culminating in the position of Project and Communication Communicator.
At Parkinson’s NSW Stacey is responsible for coordinating the operations of our network of more than 40 in-person and 15 online Support Groups.
“My priorities are helping Groups keep up the good work on managing their plans and finances, growing and improving connections across the network, and encouraging succession planning in Group leadership teams,” said Stacey.
When she’s not working with Support Groups, Stacey has another important role – mother to two boys aged 3 and 7. In her rare moments of down-time, she enjoys reading and working out to online High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) programs.
