Stacy is being recognized for having close to 2 decades of professional experience in tutoring, counseling, mentoring and consulting adolescents and youth groups. She is the Founder & President of South Shore College Consulting & Tutoring, but also as a successful published writer who is the author of the Montgomery Lake High Book Series and the Gripped Book Series, which address teenage substance abuse and other prevalent social issues.


The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Stacy for this award was an effortless decision for our panel to make. She provides visionary leadership in a male dominated industry. Her passion for supporting and guiding today's youth shows her selflessness. We are thrilled to be honoring her at the 2020 Annual Awards Gala being held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.”  

Her impressive repertoire of prior roles have included: Interior Designer of TRO, Project Manager of Professional Interiors, and Director of Operations for JBG Educational Group. South Shore College Consulting & Tutoring specializes in college counseling, college admissions essays, SAT prep, ACT prep and academic coaching.

Stacy earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design in addition to studying Architectural Engineering for two years at Wentworth Institute of Technology. Originally studying to be an Architect & Interior Designer, Stacy felt something was missing.  She was a Presidential Scholar and on the Dean’s List at Wentworth and she wanted to utilize her interpersonal, writing and math skills. She wanted to help people grow more spiritually and academically and she began tutoring part-time. She decided to leave the Architecture and Design industry and took a full-time position with a company in the metro-west which she stayed with for 8 years, quickly climbing the ranks.  In 2016, Stacy left the metro-west and began the South Shore College Consulting & Tutoring.

Throughout her illustrious career Stacy has received awards, accolades and has been recognized worldwide for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession. This year she will be considered to be broadcast on the famous Reuters Building in Times Square and will be honored as an Empowered Woman of the Year. She was just nominated for her region’s “40 Under 40”, received the Albert Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. She partnered with Teen Challenge of Massachusetts by donating books, helping the organization connect with media talents, and sponsoring their upcoming 5K. She was in Marquis Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in America and she was featured in TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine.  For 2019 she was selected as Top Educational Consultant of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP).  

Aside from her successful career Stacy is also a sought-after speaker and published author.  She has published 8 books including “Gripped Part 2: Blindsided”, “Gripped Part 3: The Fallout” and one more on the way “Gripped Part 4: Smoke and Mirrors.”  “Gripped Part 3: The Fallout” was the #1 new release on Amazon in 3 different genres (paperback and Kindle). Stacy just recently founded her own publishing company: Briley & Baxter Publications, which sponsors animal rescues with a portion of its proceeds each month. She has also written a screenplay for her book “The Aftermath” and she is working with a Hollywood producer/screenwriter to turn “Gripped” into a TV show. 

Looking back, Stacy attributes her success to her perseverance, faith, and mentors she has had along the way, and staying passionate in all her business endeavors. When not working, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. For the future, she will continue to lend her expert advice to students and their families and provide a positive experience to help the best way she knows how.
