Stacy Nadeau

Speaker, Consultant, Coach
Women Empowerment Ambassador

In the summer of 2005, six women made national news when they appeared on a Times Square billboard, dressed only in their underwear. While other nearby billboards features actresses and supermodels, this one, promoting Dove brand products, promoted real women with real curves and the nation went wild. Dove’s mission was “to make more women feel beautiful every day by widening the stereotypical theme of beauty and by inspiring women to take great care of themselves.”

Suddenly, Stacy, an industrial organizational psychology major at DePaul University, was thrust into the national spotlight. As one of the real women featured in Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty, Stacy quickly emerged as a spokeswoman for healthy body image. She appeared on the Today Show, CNN, Ellen, Dr. Phil, Tyra, and Oprah (twice).

In her 12-year span as a change-creating speaker and coach, Stacy has worked with thousands to ensure positive internal language to increase productivity and self-confidence. Stacy passionately shares her system for all women to embrace a positive mindset and kick major butt!

Stacy has committed her life and career to helping women feel great about themselves. Stacy lives in Chicago, IL with her family. She works full-time as a mom, speaker, consultant, and coach to empower women everywhere.

Embracing Real Beauty & The Confident Mindset

In her keynote, Embracing Real Beauty, Stacy speaks to men and women about the role they can each play in incrementally changing the message that young women receive. It begins at an individual level, she tells audiences. “Only when we start reinforcing positive body image in our groups and in our communities, can we start a real wave of change.”

Stacy is a fantastic choice for eating disorders and body image awareness week observances. She is also a popular choice for women’s conferences, Panhellenic education and awareness events, new student orientation and current ideas and issues series.

“This is my time to encourage and help women feel great about themselves no matter what they weigh or look like,” she said. “Women have surrendered to diets and insane eating habits to live up to social stereotypes for too long. It’s time that all women felt beautiful in their own skin.”
