Stacy Gehringer

Stacy began working with children and families as an AmeriCorps member with the Center for Families in Madison, Wisconsin. She experienced the importance of prevention and home-visiting for parents in need of additional support. Stacy earned her B.A. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she majored in Psychology and received a certificate in Gender Studies.

While in school, she worked with 7-8 year olds as a Child Tester with the University of Wisconsin Twin Project. As an MSW student at the University of Washington, Stacy had the opportunity to engage in direct practice with Washington families involved in the child welfare system and also participate in policy work at the state legislature with Partners for our Children.

Stacy is excited about Ampersand’s unique commitment to youth and families. She is blown away by the staff’s passion to ensure permanency and continuously support families through thick and thin.

When Stacy isn’t working, she enjoys exploring Minnesota’s many bike trails and breweries. She loves spending time with her family, friends… and plants.
