Meet the Staff
Many faculty, administrators, and staff are valuable partners who make the programs and events of Called to Lead happen. Called to Lead is directed by Tracy Wenger Sadd and Stacey Zimmerman.
"The Called to Lead program is for any interested student—those who have previous leadership experience as well as students who are emerging leaders. We’re looking for students who want to explore how leadership is each person’s response to his or her unique understanding of what really matters in life and work. We’ve got a great group of students, faculty, and staff, and we hope you’ll join us in Called to Lead." -- Tracy Wenger Sadd

Stacey believes in the powerful combination of honoring one's natural talents while uncovering one's unique vocational calling. Purposeful life work is calling out to all of us, and her answer to that call is to build meaningful relationships with individuals that encourage them to celebrate their strengths, reaffirm their values, and listen to what their life is calling them to. Authentic relationships are the catalyst for deep conversations about what really matters and what calls out for attention in life. Mentoring students, engaging the StrengthsFinder inventory, and cultivating discussions about strengths and vocation are top priorities in Stacey's life.
Stacey has interests in servant leadership, the five practices of exemplary leadership (The Leadership Challenge), ethical leadership, mentoring, vocation, and personality and strengths inventories. Assisting individuals in capitalizing on their strengths while nudging them to move outside of their comfort zone is a key focus of hers. She strives to help individuals understand their purpose in life so that they can lead with an inspired and clarified vision.
Stacey has spent over a decade as a Human Resources professional, nine years have been at Elizabethtown College. With this experience, she aspires to help students as they journey through their college years, develop as leaders, and define their purpose by undersatnding what really matters to them. Stacey is an Elizabethtown alumnus, holding a bachelor's degree in Business Administration.
