Co-Founder – General Manager
Stacey Berlund is one of our co-founders and the General Manager of E2E. Having grown up in Ballarat, Stacey has had first hand experience with the mental health crisis that afflicts her community. Through this experience, she has passionately developed the objective to help communities around Australia start a conversation and develop skills about mental health.
“I am lucky to be working in a role that I love, where I can add value, in seeking to have a real community impact.”
Working as a relationships manager for numerous sports clubs, including Ballarat City Football Club, Stacey has an intimate insight into the sporting community.
