Meet Stacy Doctoroff

After her first (and only) marathon run in 2008, Stacy Doctoroff turned in her running shoes for other equally focused pursuits: returning to school; earning her Master’s degree and credentials as a licensed therapist; starting a private practice; and stepping up to more and more challenging roles in the Jewish community. “My commitments grow out of my passions,” she says. Married to Andrew Doctoroff, mother of three teens, Board Member of Federation, Board Liaison for Tamarack Camps and current Chair of the Israeli Camper Program – still running at her own pace - Stacy has won the esteem of the community as recipient of Federation’s Sylvia Simon Greenberg Award for Young Leadership.

Strategic Matchmakers

They met at a local PR firm tying ribbons on invitations. Three years later they tied the knot. Married now for 15 years, they are Founder and Principals of their own company, PublicCity PR. If ever you wonder how married couples in business stay together, ask Hope and Jason Brown. Describing their marriage as “not perfect, but close,” they could write the book on building a family business all about community relations in Jewish Detroit.

Fiddler in the House

What started as a Mitzvah Project is now a little “concert circuit,” for a young violist playing for the residents of the Prentis Jewish Apartments in Oak Park and at Trowbridge in Southfield.
