Stacey grew up in L.A. and moved up to the Bay Area for college, where she majored in civil engineering. After 4 years of working as a civil engineer, she decided she wanted to invest her time in companies that focused more on sustainability and was paying ethical wages. This lead her to taking a coding bootcamp and switching to software development. Shortly after, she realized she missed civil engineering and was more passionate about building the physical world rather than the virtual world. She is now back as a design engineer at Sherwood.
