When Stacey isn’t spending time optimizing the health and well-being of others, she can be found lounging on the beach with her husband listening to waves roll, trop rock playing and a book in hand. Stacey is the mom of three young men with two in college and one finally earning his own way. They keep her busy and often with a confused expression as they speak only in movie lines and song lyrics.
