Stacey began her teaching career in Chuckey, Tennessee, returned to West Virginia in 2008, and resumed her teaching career at J.E Robins on the west side of Charleston. When she returned from Tennessee, Stacey moved to Putnam County and she had no intention of commuting thirty minutes to work each day. However, the students on the west side held a special place in her heart, and loving them became her mission.

She was the school coordinator for the Education Elevators, Hope Program, and other organizations that provided mentors for the students. She found generous sponsors to provide Christmas presents for over eighty families. Stacey managed and worked at an after school program that targeted students in first and second grade and focused on literacy. She also worked closely with a local doctor who wanted to provide the students of the west side exposure to local ballet and theater performances, and took ten students to see “The Nutcracker.” Stacey serves on the boards for the Bob Burdettte Center, an after school program that serves students on the west side of Charleston,
and the First Baptist Academy. She also serves on the Board of Christian Education at First Baptist Church of Hurricane, where she is a member.
