The Goodale School Welcomes Stacy Barnard as Director of Admissions and Marketing
The Goodale School and Recovery Community is pleased to announce that Stacy Barnard will serve as the school’s Director of Admissions and Marketing. In her role, Barnard will be a trusted partner for families and referral sources seeking to connect boys ages 14 to 17 to the substance use disorder and recovery services they need.
The Goodale School is a therapeutic residential boarding school for boys located in Asheville, North Carolina. The program combines comprehensive clinical support with an accredited academic program, family support and a variety of health, wellness and recreational activities to create an individualized recovery experience.
“We are delighted to have Stacy join our team of professionals at The Goodale School,” said Sally Burleson, M.S., LCAS, CCS, Executive Director. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding about therapeutic programs and a true passion for helping our students and families as they seek support.”
Barnard arrives at The Goodale School with eight years of experience in leadership roles at therapeutic programs in western North Carolina. She began her career as a direct care staff member at a residential treatment center for adolescent girls and went on to hold administrative and management positions, ultimately finding her calling in admissions. She served as the admissions director for a wilderness program and a young-adult transition program, both in the Asheville area.
“I am thrilled to be part of the team at The Goodale School,” said Barnard. “Beyond my personal pull to support families working through the grips of addiction, there is also a palpable energy to this team that I cannot wait for others to experience. It’s an incredible feeling to know that you can offer a sense of hope to families who have been in the dark for so long.”
Originally from Durham, North Carolina, Barnard earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. After traveling and working in New York City, she returned to North Carolina in 2012, drawn back by the beauty of the mountains of western North Carolina, which she regularly explores with her husband and three dogs.
