Stacy is 45 years old. Stacy is a mother to Charles, Stella and Cooper and wife of Chris. These people are lucky people. They have Stacy, a force of nature, in their lives. As a daughter, sister and friend, she gives her people her time, her heart and a lot of mother-trucking manic energy. She is an emotional, physical, spiritual, and artful powerhouse. Stacy has an oddly wonderful magnetic pull. She can create change in people and in situations with a centrifugal force that I am certain she was born with and continues to hone with every hour of every week. Stacy is an instigator. She instigates love, commitment and friendship. Stacy is a life-lover extraordinaire and has an infectious cackle. She currently works in a fancy corporate job, but is bound for the world of counseling & helping soon. She is the founder of Blue Raddish and just published her first book, 100 Rad Virtues, Practical Virtues for Rad Living. When Stacy walks in the room, the energy level changes. The world becomes a little better.
