A born and bred Floridian, Stacie graduated in 2001 from the University of Florida with a degree in Psychology. One year later, she married her husband Joel and soon after had her daughter Hannah and son Andrew. Following the start of her family, Stacie moved from Orlando to Dallas, Texas, then to Naperville, Illinois. In December 2012, during her time in Naperville, Stacie was diagnosed with breast cancer. However, she fought and won her battle, moving back to Winter Park, Florida in 2014 cancer free.
While Stacie loved being a stay-at-home mom for ten years, she found that she had more time on her hands as her children grew older. She reached out to Dana while looking for a job that would provide her the flexible schedule she needed to continue to maintain her health and take care of her kids. Stacie excels as Keepsake’s office manager while also maintaining their social media presence and helping out with other business aspects. “Having a better understanding of multiple roles helps me to be more efficient in my own role,” she says.
Maintaining her health is a high priority for Stacie, but that doesn’t keep her from enjoying her job as a softball and basketball mom. Between games and practice, Stacie spends time traveling, crocheting, doing yoga, and relaxing with her friends and family.
Working at Keepsake
Keepsake is a unicorn; everyone cares and respects one another. I have never worked somewhere where everyone enjoys their job like they do here.
Tulips because they were my Grandma Winnie’s favorite.

There will always be parts of a job that are not perfect, but make sure that 90% of it is. If something is amiss, always ask yourself, “What can I do to make it better.”
