She plans to be the first point of contact for all media inquiries, ensuring that Money Mentors’ message is conveyed authentically and responsively. “Every opportunity to engage with the media is an opportunity to serve more Albertans. We’re all about building trust and showcasing our role as a safe and trustworthy place for financial guidance,” Stacy shares as her strategy for media relations.

Moreover, Stacy intends to be personally involved in client interactions. This unique approach not only demonstrates her commitment to understanding the needs of Albertans but also sets a powerful example of leadership within Money Mentors. “I think it’s really important that, as a leader, I put my money where my mouth is. Being on the front lines, answering calls, and meeting clients – that’s where the real impact happens. It’s about showing we’re all in this together,” she explains.

Under Stacy’s leadership, Money Mentors is poised to strengthen its position as a beacon of financial stability and education in Alberta. Her leadership promises a blend of empathy, innovation, and unwavering dedication to the community.
