A dedicated wife, mother, and working professional, Stacie finds strength in her favourite quote by Henry Ford:
“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals.”
An avid runner, and community leader, Stacie is committed to her passion of inspiring dynamic women to achieve their dreams. As a Professional Sales Representative and Business Development Director, she has successfully integrated over 10 years of leadership in the healthcare field with community advocacy. She participates in various healthcare non-profits, including the People’s Medical College and Adopt a Family, while also coaching women in health and fitness at the Detroit Medical Center. She is proud of her most recent accomplishment as a runner, completing her first marathon in Chicago.
Although Stacie has received numerous accolades as a healthcare professional and community leader, her true pride and joy is spending quality time with her husband of 11 years, Craig, daughter Samantha, and son Zachary.
As a family they practice “Random Acts of Kindness”, paying forward anonymously the gifts of time and of caring, or of food and money, to those who need it and least expect it. This is a practice that Stacie grew up with when as a child she accompanied her Mom as she left groceries on the doorsteps of those less fortunate than they.
Stacie believes that the Mrs.Michigan United States ® 2014 title will afford her the opportunity to impact lives at a greater level, specifically the lives of women.
“As Mrs. Michigan United States, my purpose would be to help women realize that we are all united by similar experiences of pain, of loss, of challenge and adversity, and through this, we can achieve greatness by supporting each other.”
