Stacey Prussman's Lecture Program

Why Does Stacey Speak?


Stacey’s earliest memories of her disordered eating patterns and negative self image where around age 10 after her big audition for the title role in Annie on Broadway. An agent told her after her audition, “You need to lose weight.” She was immediately put on a very strict diet and the next 15 years were filled with an array of fad diets, weight loss pills, periods of starvation, extreme exercise, depression, anxiety and bulimia. After being sent to an emergency room due to the effects of her eating disorder, she knew her only choice was to seek help. She fought with a vengeance for her own recovery and learned to set her own standards. Stacey is now encouraging others do the same by telling her personal story with humor and brutal honesty. Stacey has been in recovery from her eating disorder for over 10 years and not only has she been committed to her own healing she has been committed to healing the planet. She is a professional stand-up comedian, actress, TV host, certified personal trainer, motivational speaker, environmentalist, animal welfare advocate, but most importantly, an eating disorder survivor. In 2012, Stacey was nominated for Female Performer of the year by Campus Activities Magazine. In addition, she was recently named one of 2014's Hot Speakers
