|Stacy Kaye Joins mobileWOMEN.org|
Stacy Kaye formally joins mobileWOMEN.org as a contributing writer and media advisor after working as a consultant.
A former television reporter and for CBS and NBC Affiliates, Stacy has recently relocated to Washington, DC, with the goal of ensuring women, particularly those with a disability, are part of the political process. To that end, Stacy is working with the newly formed Disability Power & Pride PAC. (This is an independent organization that does not support any party, rather individual candidates that show leadership in the area of disability rights.)
For more than a decade Stacy has actively fund raised for medical charities focusing on neurological injuries and disorders. Foremost on that list is The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, where she previously served on the Board of Directors for its New York City Chapter.
A freelance journalist for both local and national media, Stacy holds an MSJ from the Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University, a Certificate in Comparative Culture from the Univ of London, UK, and a BA from the University of Rochester, NY. Stacy was the first journalist to graduate from the Citizen's Police Academy in Beckley, WV, while at the local NBC Affiliate.

In April 2000, while working as an on-air reporter for an NBC affiliate, Stacy was in a news vehicle that went out of control, flipped several times and caught fire. As a result, she is a paraplegic due to a spinal cord injury. An initial 18-hour surgery saved her life. In her free time Stacy stays healthy with Pilates, KAFO training, charity relay races, and most recently started sky diving.
Wendy Crawford, founder and managing editor of mobileWOMEN.org shares "We are ecstatic to have Stacy join our team. She is a tremendous asset and exemplifies the mobileWOMEN spirit!"
