Stacie grew up in the western part of Asheville, graduating from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a bachelor's degree in Health and Wellness Promotion. She is also a Certified CrossFit Level 1 Coach. While fitness has always been what drives her, she has a niche for helping people understand the importance of nutrition for one's optimal health. After starting her business as an online health and fitness coach, she realized that many of her clients greatly struggled with nutrition - and grocery shopping. This sparked the interest in growing and feeding her own food and how she could bridge the gap between the community and the access to healthy foods without the additives and chemicals.
