Before becoming an author, Stacy was a newspaper reporter for 14 years, primarily at the Richmond Times-Dispatch in Virginia. She went on to build a freelance writing career through which she penned articles for national publications such as AARP’s Bulletin, Heart & Soul magazine and Crosswalk.com, and served as the Times-Dispatch’s freelance parenting columnist for more than a decade, through early 2018. She also served as a writing, marketing and community engagement strategist for nonprofits, using her skills to help family, youth-centric and literacy organizations better tell their stories. Since that time, she has served as a contributing blogger for the Huffington Post and as a special edition freelance writer for Our Daily Bread.
In addition to penning books, Stacy maintains a blog called Life Untapped, through which she encourages women to recognize and embrace their relevance. She also provides guidance to aspiring authors through her Focused Writers Membership Community, and by occasionally leading writing workshops and teaching at writers conferences in Richmond and around the nation.
Beyond the literary world, Stacy is a marketing and communications professional for an independent school. She holds a graduate degree in women’s leadership studies, and often shares messages with corporate, civic and faith-based organizations related to empowerment and leadership, personal growth, and the power of storytelling. She devotes considerable volunteer time to advocating for women and children, leading to recognition in recent years as a YWCA of Richmond “Outstanding Woman of the Year” and a Style Weekly magazine Top 40 honoree. Stacy is also an alumna of Leadership Metro Richmond and is well-versed in diversity and inclusion issues as a result of that experience and her communications work. She lives with her family in suburban Richmond, Virginia.
