Stacey Hess
Ministry Development Manager

We are thrilled to welcome our newest member of the East Side staff, Stacey Hess! After growing up very close to NYC, Stacey has found her true home in the city after spending time in Massachusetts for college and the Pacific Northwest for nature and social enterprise. In Seattle she worked in business development and sales for a start-up coffee company that blended the for-profit and non-profit world to benefit ministry and charitable work. Stacey now lives in Manhattan and is thrilled to be the Ministry Development Manager for Redeemer’s East Side. She enjoys running and biking in circles in Central Park, and discovering hidden culinary gems throughout the city.
