Stacey A. Cabezas is the Head of Programs at Radical Health. A proud Latina who was raised in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx, Stacey has always had a passion for her community, her culture, and helping others.
Prior to joining Radical Health, Stacey enjoyed a career in journalism and press relations with El Diario/La Prensa, the largest Spanish-language newspaper in New York, and CCCADI (Caribbean Culture Center African Diaspora Institute) where she cultivated stories that highlight and serve the communities through culture and information. Stacey had the pleasure of working on various projects, from assisting in the coverage of the 2013 mayoral election to curating three separate exhibits throughout New York City, highlighting the Latino presence and experience through the eyes of historical archives of the newspaper.
Stacey’s passion for community led her to social work with Cayuga Centers, a non-profit organization that focused on unaccompanied minors. Through her case management experience, specifically working with undocumented children, Stacey learned how to work and advocate on behalf of this vulnerable population hands on as a case manager and later as the Assistant Director of Case Management. Her experience being a social worker, coupled with work in journalism and real life experiences growing up in the Bronx, have brought her back to her roots to make a difference in the community that she loves.
Stacey graduated from the College of Mount Saint Vincent with a Communication degree and shares a love of reading, writing and learning. She is passionate about the Mets and WWE (not WWF), is a member of Hufflepuff and an avid Game of Thrones fan.
