Stacy Opitz

External Relations Director
Pronouns: she/her/hers

Started with Prepare + Prosper (P+P): In November 2009 as the communications + marketing director and moved into the external relations director role in 2020. Prior to joining P+P, I worked at Casa de Esperanza, Hennepin County Library, and CLUES. I’ve spent time working with the Latino community – through jobs and volunteer work with the former Riverview Economic Development Association one St. Paul’s West Side.

In my role: I oversee the development, communications, and outreach functions of the organization. I lead a team of five in telling the story of our work to foster support for and participation in P+P’s mission.

Geeks out over: Branding, painting pictures with words, and innovating to communicate impact and raise money that powers the life-changing work of our customers, staff, and volunteers.

When it’s not tax season: You can find me fixing up an old house, visiting breweries, hiking and camping state and national parks, doing needlework, listening to true crime podcasts, and spending time with my five little nephews.
