Stacey Brady

Director of Continuous Engagement Events

Stacey Brady has been planning and executing live events since 1998, and has been at Online Trading Academy since 2012. As Director of Continuous Engagement Events, she leads her department in providing education centers with a full menu of dynamic programming and then making sure those events come off without a hitch.

Online Trading Academy events give students the opportunity to further their education by learning what’s new in the OTA curriculum while getting a real-time updates on the status of the financial markets. Students who have been away from their centers can re-engage with the staff and instructors, and active students can get up to speed on new developments in the market. Once an event is scheduled, top-level instructors and amenities are put in place to make it a success. She believes the key is to customize the content based on students’ interests and needs.

Prior to joining the Online Trading Academy family, Mrs. Brady did event planning for Patina Restaurant Group, Orange County Performing Arts Center and Hyatt Hotels. Over the course of her career, she managed events consisting of the Emmy Awards Governors Ball, Critics Choice Awards, weddings, concerts, conferences, private dining and off-site catering. In addition, she spent time at Southern California Edison as an analyst, learning to use metrics to benchmark business success. She has also taught business communication to university students and working professionals in Beijing, China.

Mrs. Brady earned a B.S. in Cognitive Science and a B.S. in Management Science from the University of California at San Diego. She married in 2008 and has two biological children and a foster child. She and her family are active travelers and snowboarders who live in Southern California.
