& Advocacy

Awareness Saves Lives.

I’m passionate about giving back to my community and helping people live longer, healthier lives. That’s why I am a Health Advocate working with the American Heart Association | American Stroke Association. I raise awareness about women’s heart health as a Go Red For Women spokeswoman, I advocate for better health programs and medical care in New Jersey as a member of the American Heart Association’s Government Relations Committee, and I champion fundraisers that benefit research and community programs.

Through my advocacy work and sharing my personal experience, I want to empower people to be the CEO of their own health, raise money for life-saving medical research and create networks that provide compassion, education and support. I would love one day for the world to be free of stroke and heart disease. I know this won’t happen in my lifetime, but I hope that my contributions get us closer to that goal.

What People Are Saying

Cheerful Woman with Glasses

Kathy Goss, Health Advocate

I have known Stacy Quinn for over five years and have found her to be the most dedicated and passionate advocate of stroke awareness in women. She shares her own stroke survivor story to help save lives. She’s committed herself to the fight for research and treatment of strokes in women.”

Woman with Long Hair

Jill Vitiello, Partner & EVP, Global Communications Agency

If you want to know what it’s like to survive a stroke, ask Stacy Quinn. In generously sharing her own near-death experience, Stacy tells a captivating story of initial disbelief, courage and resilience that resonates with everyone who hears it.


Her message of hope and healing goes beyond her own experience. Stacy’s keynotes, articles and social media posts are packed with up-to-the minute, immediately actionable health information that drives meaningful behavior changes among audiences around the country. Stacy is a believable, likeable and compelling champion of cardiovascular awareness. Listen to her!

Woman on Phone

Janice Recca, Executive Coach

As a “sister” Survivor and Go Red For Women Ambassador, I've had the privilege of getting to know Stacy over the past six years. Stacy’s passion about raising awareness of stroke, (e.g. spontaneous carotid artery dissection) has made her an esteemed leader with the American Heart Association, as she developed her talent to educate and mentor with compassion.


Stacy’s compelling story of her life altering event and incredible resiliency has taught survivors that they too can overcome a life-threatening health crisis and go on to thrive.
