Stacy Whitcomb-Smith '95 From Eph Sports Info to Clinical Psychologist HealthPsych Maine & Adjunct Faculty at University of Maine

Current position:  I am a clinical psychologist at HealthPsych Maine and adjunct faculty at the University of Maine. In addition to treating adults with anxiety and chronic health conditions, I supervise doctoral students. I also serve on our local youth soccer  board, helping organize recreational and travel opportunities for kids. I have coached soccer for kids age 4-14 (which I started doing while at Williams) and I have also coached kids' basketball.   

Graduation year:  1995

Sports played at Williams:

Varsity Soccer (2 years), JV asst. coach Senior year 

Lacrosse (3 Years)

Rugby (senior spring)

Intramural basketball

Does broom ball count?  

Degree:  BA in Psychology, Neuroscience Concentration

How I got involved with Sports Info: I think Sara Treworgy recommended me.  We played soccer together and were fellow Mainers. I needed a flexible work study position and I like sports.  

What were my duties for Sports Info/favorite memories:  Mostly writing up box scores and press releases for basketball, baseball, and other teams. I remember being in the press box for some home football games, but I have no idea what I was helping with—maybe calling the game for someone who could type faster than me? That was the most fun, because there were several of us working together unlike most other sports reporting, which was usually solitary. I liked being up on how the teams were doing—especially since we were usually doing well!

The thing I remember most, although it was not an "assigned" duty was organizing DQ's office. I had a lower tolerance for disarray than DQ! I liked finding old photos, especially of the coaches still on campus.

Fun Facts:  Stacy won the 1995 Frank Deford Award. One evening Stacy cleaned the Sports Info Office so well that DQ had to call her to find out where many of the needed items were now located. That was back in the day when the students had to come to Sports Info to write their stories on a word processor and then FAX them to the local media.
