Welcome, Stacey Cloninger! 

We’re excited to welcome Stacey as the new Vice President of Quality and Compliance for Alive! 

Stacey Cloninger joins us from Kindred at Home (Avalon and Kindred Hospice) where she recently served as the Area Vice President of Operations. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from East Tennessee State University. After beginning her tenure with Avalon and Kindred Hospice as an RN Case Manager, she quickly climbed the ranks of the organization to Senior Executive Director and then Back-Up Administrator for the State of TN. With over 12 years of experience in leadership and management, Cloninger has been recognized as the “Best of the Best” for her clinical leadership, honored as a “Star Mentor,” and has been key in establishing organizational quality metric standards and maximizing operational functions in her previous roles.  


Fun Facts: 

  • Stacey is married with 3 children ages 26, 24, and 18, and dog named Izzy. Her family is full of Green Bay Packer fans! But watch out when it comes to college ball! 3 are Michigan fans, 1 roots for Ohio State, and 1 is a UT fan. 
  • Stacey and her family live in Knoxville, near the lake, where they enjoy time on their boat.   
  • In her spare time, Stacey listens to audio books and is a self-taught crocheter. She makes blankets for her family who tease her for their crookedness and imperfections (but that’s why they love them)! 


Welcome, Stacey – we’re glad to have you!
