About Stacey

Stacey is a strong advocate for educating others about mental health issues and being part of the solution to removing the stigma. Her passion and desire to create change was strengthened throughout her life with lived experiences involving mental health within her family, friendships, relationships and work environment.

Stacey’s career saw her move into various roles in the corporate world for over 20 years, providing a diverse background of experience including workplace health and safety, account management, business development, and legal/compliance/government/regulatory.

Stacey undertook further studies in Holistic Kinesiology which lead to her starting her own business, Infinite Balance in 2013. It was through this that she became aware of Mental Health First Aid Australia and the courses available, eventually becoming a “MHFAider’ before doing her instructor course. She has worked with clients in finance, energy, not-for-profit, sustainability, telecommunications, sports, pay tv to name just a few of the industries.
