Stacey Marie Keba is a Philadelphia-based writer, actor, and activist who will be satisfied when her work helps at least one person when they need it the most.
She started stepping into her power of storytelling five years ago when she regularly contributed to The Intelligencer, The Bucks County Courier Times, The Burlington County Times, and The Odyssey. Stacey began guest-posting on I’m On My Side in 2019, and her mental health awareness speeches have been heard over 20,000 times.
As a Theatre Performance at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, Stacey loved every show and scene she got to work on, but her favorite credit will always be puppeteering young Rebecca in Paula Vogel’s The Long Christmas Ride Home.
If you feel daring enough, ask her about that time Rebecca’s leg snapped mid performance and what the hell she did about it. Oof.
She is currently studying for film and television under the direction of Bryan Fox.

“I’m On My Side is the land of FREEDOM. It’s a space where I want you to feel SAFE from judgment, criticism, guilt or shame. It’s a space where I hope you find information, support, empathy, education, love, hope, motivation, inspiration, laughter and connection. It’s a space where you can raise your voice, share your experiences and help others to find their light. A place where we’ll heal together hard things by growing self-love, the power within us and knowledge of our rights.
I hope this space is the spark that helps you to fight for the life you want. I’ll be on your side. Are you ready to be On Your Side?
Are you ready to tell yourself ‘I’m On My Side’?”

Keba enjoys the little things in life–
Free coffee. Federal Donut Friday. Dressing to impress her boyfriend’s grandma, Dot (yes, you read that right). And cuddling with her Cavalier King Charles pup named Lincoln. She even likes talking about herself in third person–even more than Sgt. Terry Jeffords from her favorite TV show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
But in terms of what she wants to do with her life, it’s fair to say it’s a toss up between winning Pulitzers and Academy Awards and making people laugh their asses off on SNL. But real estate is cool, too. So, in all of her free time between #adulting, stressing out, freaking out, getting her real estate license, and having a quarter life crisis, Stacey got creative and added another thing to her plate like she always f*cking does. Because, what else is new?
