Stacie Williamson began her role at Heartspring as the director of development in August of 2015 after working for the Wichita State University (WSU) Foundation for five years in the special events and development fields. Becoming a part of the Heartspring team has been a natural next step in her career in fundraising, event planning and development. Stacie’s greatest joy is helping connect supporters to their passion and because of that, her work has always been mission driven – from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sedgwick County (BBBS), to the WSU Foundation and now at Heartspring. Stacie often finds herself in positions of creating processes and implementing strategic plans for success. While at BBBS, Stacie ran the second largest Bowl For Kids’ Sake campaign in the country, raising over $450,000.
Stacie has an enthusiasm and a positive outlook for her job. As a member of the Heartspring team, she brings that supportive energy to the development and fundraising efforts. Within her first six months at Heartspring, Stacie expanded the development team to better meet the organization’s fundraising needs.
Stacie’s mission of working to improve others' lives doesn’t end with her job. Stacie strives to improve her community in her personal life, as well. She has volunteered at Big Brothers Big Sisters and was part of the inaugural Salvation Army Young Professionals Advisory Board, where she held the title of chairperson.
Stacie is a proud WSU alumna, graduating in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in marketing. As a very active and involved student at WSU, she belonged to the Delta Gamma sorority and was a member of the nationally-ranked cheerleading team. Stacie and her husband are basketball season ticket holders and still enjoy cheering on the Shockers.
Stacie’s husband, Jeremiah, is a fire fighter and service member of the Army National Guard, and they have three children – Reed, Liam and Annie. As a mother of three young children, Stacie’s passion for the Heartspring mission is a personal one, and the best part of her job is getting to see the miracles that happen for Heartspring children every day.
