Stacey Gordon is a puppeteer from Phoenix, AZ. She operates Puppet Pie, an art studio in the heart of Phoenix, and has the honor of performing one of Sesame Street’s newest friends, Julia, a curious 4-year-old girl with autism.
Stacey began her journey with the autism community in 2001 as a habilitation specialist. In 2010, her son was diagnosed with autism, and her journey continued. She uses her personal experiences as a habilitation specialist and mom to bring Julia to life in an authentic, respectful, and loving way. In addition to her work on Sesame Street, Stacey teaches puppetry to a neurodiverse audience around the country as well as at Puppet Pie. Stacey is an alumna of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Puppetry Conference and serves on the board of directors for the Puppeteers of America.
