The Beginning Years
Born on November 11, Stacy grew up in a Christ-centered home rooted in love. Stacy developed a foundation of leadership at an early age. Her father would always say, she could sale anything to anybody. This skill would shape her leadership in her latter years.
Stacy matriculated at Morgan State University, graduating in 1993 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. She was recognized for her exceptional teaching as a student teacher and received an open contract from Howard County Public School System where she would go on to teach first grade that same year. After two years of successful teaching, Stacy was promoted to First Grade Team Leader, leading a team of 4 seasoned teachers. Stacy was astonished by her appointment , having only taught for two years , but trusted Gods plan for her life and her Principal who recognized the gift of leadership in her.
In 1996 Stacy’s mother, was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Soon after, Stacy made the difficult decision to resign from her position as teacher/team leader to support her mom. Little did she know this decision would change the trajectory of her life and career.
Stacy accepted a position as Career Counselor at Woodland Job Corps Center in 1998 and was quickly promoted to management. Her Job Corps career spanned 17 years serving in several Director and Corporate positions. Unbeknownst to her, her Job Corps experiences were preparing her to step into business ownership.
