Having specialized in the treatment of eating disorders since 1991, Stacie serves on the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals' Board of Directors.
Stacie joined the Duke University Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) in 1998 as the Coordinator of Duke's Eating and Body Image Concerns Treatment Team, concomitant with her work at The Duke Center for Eating Disorders, a renowned outpatient program at Duke University Medical Center.
In 2006, Stacie was recruited as the first Executive Director of Carolina House, a well-respected residential eating disorder treatment center for adult women. In this start-up venture, Stacie partnered with Chase Bannister to develop a clinically-sound and home-like environment for women to initiate and continue work in eating disorder recovery.
Stacie is keenly invested in eating disorders certification for treating professionals. She believes that both clinicians and eating disorder treatment facilities must function with best-practice, evidence-based models of care. She also serves on the Standards Committee for the Residential Eating Disorders Consortium.
Stacie and Chase continue to foster strong, collaborative relationships with eating disorders and healthcare professionals, patients, and their families around the world.
