Meet the Team: Stacey Harms, Manager of Government Affairs

Stacey Harms - photo by Max KrupkaStacey Harms is the manager of government affairs at AAHomecare. She joined the team in the spring of 2005.

As a member of the government relations team, Stacey attends Capitol Hill visits and lobbies for homecare issues, both regulatory and legislative. She is the resident expert on obscure regulatory policy, poring through several hundred page CMS documents upon their release and drafting detailed position papers on any given cause within the association. Stacey keeps a constant “ear to the ground” in Washington, given her many contacts (many of whom she considers friends) – as evidenced by her Blackberry usage data each month.

Stacey received a bachelors and masters degree in journalism in 2004 and 2005, respectively, from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. She has covered a wide-range of issues, including healthcare, politics, bull riding and sports.

Fun Facts
  • Stacey is a sharp shooter – she has attended many boot-wearing events where she gets to show off her shotgun skills – rooted in the ten years she lived in Oklahoma.

  • Stacey is a proud member of the Junior League of Washington, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

  • Stacey once danced on stage with George Clinton at a Parliament Funkadelic concert.
