Stacy believes in equal access to success opportunities; and in living great adventures.
She was the youngest person, and first woman, to launch a Wall Street hedge fund, achieving 20+% annual returns 10 years straight. She retired at 34, moved to Australia to spend 3 months diving the Great Barrier Reef (and “educating” herself on Shiraz), and then led business development for Credit Suisse Asset Management Australia with significant growth in funds under management.
In 1999, she launched one of the earliest localized online travel platforms. She has lived in the Middle East, North Africa, and Australia; worked in or visited 60+ countries; and been a high-value kidnapping target in Algeria with diplomatic security, 24 hour guards, and training in counterintelligence, shoot to kill, and driving armored vehicles.
Stacy’s experience spans financial services, digital media, travel services, entrepreneurship, and professional development training. She has trained thousands of people around the world including diplomats, C-suite, small businesses, and college students. Stacy is the daughter of a veteran and was a military spouse.
