Director of Online Community
Stacey teaches the GMAT, GRE, and LSAT for the Manhattan Prep companies and also serves as Manhattan GMAT's Director of Online Community; in addition, she writes books and articles, shoots instructional videos, and trains other teachers. She spent a decade as a management consultant, specializing in corporate strategy. Over the past fifteen years, she has gotten quite good at telling other people what to do, including such clients as Intel, various European banks and AT&T (are there any consultants left who haven’t worked for AT&T?). She is also quite good at traveling to exotic locales on someone else’s dime (New Zealand and India are her favorite to date).
Before starting her teaching and consulting careers, Stacey earned a biology degree from the University of Michigan, where she began her teaching career as the first undergraduate organic chemistry lab assistant. (She also worked as a university fundraiser, a barrista, an admin for a doctor’s office, a short-order cook, an emergency-room gopher... you’re probably beginning to get an idea why she plays so many different roles for Manhattan Prep.)
Stacey now lives in Montreal, where she is learning to deal with the long winters and trying to learn French. She is in awe of her students who speak English as a second language; she can't imagine taking a test like the GMAT in French! If you can think of the (English-based) standardized test, she has probably taught it – including, of course, the GMAT, which she has been teaching for more than fifteen years (and on which she earned a score of 780). Her former students have gone on to such institutions as Columbia, Wharton, and HBS. Stacey
Stacey’s favorite thing about teaching is that moment when she sees the answering sparks in her students’ eyes because they thoroughly comprehend a difficult concept.
