Retrieved from

Stacey lives in San Francisco and practices corporate law at a law firm that specializes in representing technology companies. She earned her JD degree from New York University School of Law in 1998 and completed her undergraduate degree at the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1994, with a combined BA degree in both Physics and the Politics & Philosophy of Law.

Although she now resides on the West Coast, Stacey spent the majority of her life on the East Coast, growing up on Long Island and attending school in upstate New York and Manhattan.

The three adjectives Stacey uses to describe herself are intuitive, direct and sarcastic. She is most proud of remaining optimistic about life and people despite experiencing some emotionally difficult times, including overcoming thyroid cancer. Her perfect day would be taking a long hike along the coastal bluff and redwoods, followed by a foot rub and nap, and, finally, enjoying a gourmet dinner with good wine and great friends.

She has just been approved as a volunteer for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of San Francisco program, and is awaiting assignment to a little girl. Stacey is currently single and enjoying her own "reality" living situation with four roommates and one dog. Her birth date is Aug. 11, 1972.[2]


In Survivor: Borneo, Stacey was a member of the Tagi tribe and constantly clashed with Rudy Boesch. At the first Tribal Council, Stacey tried to bond with the women of her tribe to vote off Rudy; Kelly agreed, but Susan was hesitant. Sonja Christopher was voted out instead in a 4-3-1 vote because she was deemed as the physically weakest among the Tagi tribe. Stacey single-handedly won Tagi their first challenge on Day 6, which required them to eat a live beetle larva. Despite this, the tribe agreed that she would be a liability in future challenges, and she was voted off third in a 5-2 vote.

  • In early 2001, she sued CBS claiming that Mark Burnett arranged her exit and orchestrated the show's outcome. It was stated in a 14-page lawsuit, filed February 5, 2001, that two of her fellow tribemates, Dirk Been and Sean Kenniff, were persuaded to change their vote from 72-year-old Rudy Boesch to her.[3]
  • Stacey wanted restitution for lost prize money, plus $75,000 representing out-of-pocket expenses and punitive damages. CBS and Burnett said in a statement that her claims were groundless. Been supported her allegations. Kenniff told USA Today that the vote was not influenced, and Burnett said to "Vote your conscience," but it did not feel to him that was coercion. The case was eventually settled out of court.


  • Stacey, Sonja Christopher, and Kelly Wiglesworth are the first Survivor contestants from California.
  • When Stacey was voted out, her torch was already extinguished because of the pouring rain. After she left Tribal Council, the remaining Tagi members were advised to stay at Tribal Council until the rain subsided the next day.
  • With her lawsuit, it was revealed that Survivor contestants must sign a gag order that forbids them to spoil the possible outcome of their season, or face a $5,000,000 penalty.[4]
  • Stacey's luxury item was a camera.
