Master-planned Trinity Falls has hired Stacy Shipman as its new Director of Fun.

In her role, Shipman will coordinate all resident activities, including seasonal events, community outings, special-interest clubs for residents and more.

“I volunteered as a community liaison with the HOA in my last neighborhood, so I understand the importance this role has in creating a camaraderie among residents,” Shipman said. “I’m grounded with a family-first mentality in everything I do, and believe that this will translate perfectly into helping create a fun, exciting and safe environment here at Trinity Falls.”

Shipman has a long history in event planning for groups as small as 50 and as large as 5,000, organizing corporate meetings, incentive trips and domestic and international trade shows. She also has a background in sales support and account management. A native of Plano, Shipman holds a degree in business management from the University of Phoenix.

“Stacy’s breadth of experience will greatly benefit the residents of Trinity Falls,” said Jim Baker, general manager of the community. “She brings a keen eye for organization, exceptional creativity and a passion for helping residents connect. Stacy understands the broader nuances of this role.”

Shipman is continuing with seasonal events already in the planning stages and is meeting with residents to determine interests. Among her first visitors was the community’s Red Hat Society, she says.

“The ladies with the Red Hat Society came over to introduce themselves,” she said. “It’s going to be very beneficial being able to office here in the community.”

Named the 2016 “Master-Planned Community of the Year” by the Dallas Builders Association, Trinity Falls offers homes priced from the $200,000s to more than $600,000. Approximately 620 families live in Trinity Falls, which is located just northwest of McKinney.
