FLFPC welcomes Stacy Brown to the Board of Directors!
Stacy Brown is an avid ocean lover, community connector and nonprofit supporter and she strives to fulfill her mission of creating dynamic positive change in our community.
Over the past 17 years, Stacy has served in various capacities on nonprofit boards working with educational, environmental, and religious nonprofit groups and received her Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from Nova Southeastern University. In 2019 she founded, Trident Business Solutions, a bookkeeping and business operations consulting company serving small businesses and nonprofits. She is currently pursuing her Master's in Marine Science with Nova Southeastern University and her business specializations include: grant writing, event planning, fundraising, program development, and financial and business operations.
Over the past 5 years, she has been fortunate to be able to utilize her science background, serve her community and foster environmental stewardship by working with three South Florida based nonprofits. Urban Farming Institute as Operations & Development Director, 1000 Mermaids Artificial Reef Project as CFO & Education Director and Ocean Rescue Alliance as Co-Founder, CFO & Education Director.
Stacy has taught thousands of students and adult community members about environmental stewardship growing their own food and has helped to establish several gardens in schools and communities. Her hard work and experience with science and event programming allowed her to establish STEAM field trips, after school programs and summer camps with Urban Farming Institute for Broward County. As a mother of teenage triplet sons, she understands the importance of educating children beyond that of the traditional classroom so in 2019 she began a marine biology education initiative, Coral Rangers, which helps local students to gain their open water SCUBA Certification and teaches them to be environmental stewards for our coral reefs.
In 2021 she began coordinating a new community garden project, The All Community Garden, for NFL Sisters in Service. The new garden concept will help ease food insecurity in Broward County through the development of a community garden and food forest concept to demonstrate food growing techniques to the residents of Dania Beach, Hollywood and Liberia. Also in 2021, she began as advisor for the South Florida Association of Environmental Professionals (SFAEP) Coral Nursery and Oyster Reef projects.
Stacy plans on continuing to make our community more connected, to teach our residents to grow their own food and to enable our citizen scientists to save our environment and restore our reefs and oceans.
