Stacy Kern-Scheerer grew up in Louisville, KY and came to Williamsburg in 2009 via Wisconsin, Boston, D.C., and a few other stops along the way. She wears a lot of hats: lawyer, mom, professor, wife, City councilwoman, friend, daughter, dog-lover, and all-around life enthusiast. Professionally, she is the Director of Clinical Programs at William & Mary Law School, the Director of the Law School’s Immigration Clinic, and a Clinical Associate Professor of Law. Her work is especially motivating and meaningful to her because it is through the Clinical Programs at the Law School that the law students learn how to use their advocacy skills to assist underserved and underrepresented populations in our community and throughout the Commonwealth.
Stacy has long carried a strong commitment to community and public service. Right out of law school and public health school, she spent a decade as a nonpartisan legislative attorney in U.S. Senate. Here in Williamsburg, Stacy has served as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of Olde Towne Medical & Dental Center, as Williamsburg City Representative on the Colonial Community Criminal Justice Board, and as a local PTA volunteer. Now in her first year on Williamsburg City Council, she serves on the School Liaison Committee and Local Emergency Planning Committee. She is incredibly honored to be a part of DWWS to support Literacy for Life and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
Stacy particularly loves hiking and biking with her family, going to Pilates class, and spending time with her friends. She wants to thank her incredible family, especially her husband and son, and her inspiring circle of friends for the constant love and support and encouragement they give. As the late, great David Bowie often said, “Let’s dance!”
