A little about Me

Major Stacie Shafran received her commission from the Reserve Officer Training Corps in 2000. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Colorado-Boulder and an MBA from Nichols College. Her multinational and joint assignments include tours in the Republic of Korea and Italy, two tours in Afghanistan supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and one tour in Iraq supporting Operation New Dawn. On her second deployment, she experienced a traumatic loss while assigned to a year-long mission supporting a small Provincial Reconstruction Team in Afghanistan. Four of Stacie's teammates, including her commander, were killed in an attack on a convoy she was originally scheduled to be on. During the 2017 Warrior Games, Stacie will compete in track, field and cycling. She earned five medals during the 2017 Air Force Trials. Since enrolling in AFW2, she has become one of the program's peer mentors. Her biggest supporters are her parents, Steve and Carol, and sister, Amy.
