As a way to give back to her community, Stacy is a big supporter of our military, police, and fire departments; and is a yearly donor to the Redlands Police Officer Foundation. She also supports the Redlands Animal Shelter through donations, and 4 personal dog adoptions! As a self-made business owner, Stacy firmly believes that every woman should be given the chance to find financial success and independence, and therefore supports the Purple Purse Foundation, and the House of Ruth Shelter for Abused Women.
