Stacy Plaisance

Regional Director, Seattle

Stacy demonstrates a commitment to fostering a supportive treatment experience through compassion and integrity. She originally joined the Northbound team as a Regional Director of Referral Relations, leading a team of Referral Relations Managers with a strong focus on our mission of supporting clients in meeting their treatment goals by fostering trust, balance and authenticity.
Early in her career, Stacy found a deep passion for leadership when serving as a Chemical Dependency Professional in her home state of Washington. This opportunity allowed her to work directly with clients and develop her natural strengths as a leader by mentoring others in the field. Stacy has been an active contributor in the behavioral health community by leading clinical quality improvement groups and speaking at local and national conferences. In 2010 Stacy returned to school to complete her Master’s in Business Administration with a focus on Healthcare Management. Following the completion of her degree, Stacy transitioned into outreach and client relations. Throughout her own recovery, she has found these principles to be critically important to healing and overcoming addiction. Stacy lives in Seattle with her two dogs, two children and her husband. She is very active, often hiking, skiing, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with friends and others in recovery.
