PHOEBE STONBELY MANAGER OF OPERATIONS AND OUTREACH, LAWSUIT REFORM ALLIANCE OF NEW YORK Birthday: 02/13/1989

EDUCATION

University at Albany

HEN PHOEBE S T O N B E LY had the chance to help launch an organization straight out of college, she jumped at it. After nearly seven years as the manager of operations and outreach for the Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York, she has been a vital part of the group’s growth to more than 5,000 members. Stonbely had the unique opportunity to help craft her role with the organization. As a result, she handles a wide variety of responsibilities, including payroll, benefits, budgeting, press, event planning and social media. But one of the best parts of the job, she says, is working with her colleagues. “When we work together here, we sit down, we brainstorm. We work really cohesively, and we play off of each other’s skills,” she says. “There’s a lot of flexibility within our work environment.” Stonbely was a marketing major at the University at Albany, and she feels she has built a role for herself that makes use of her background. “When you’re lobbying for issues, a lot of that is marketing as well. It’s trying to make individuals understand your issue and become part of your fight, part of your mission,” she says. It’s all part of the skill set that drew her to marketing as a student, she says. “I like interaction. I like talking to people and engaging,” she says. “It’s gathering the right information to communicate with people.”
