Hi, I’m Stacy

Writer, mother, runner, Disney Parks Moms Panelist, communications professional and passionate about promoting health, nutrition and wellness.

My favorite quote, from Walt Disney, personifies my mission in life: “All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”

What am I all about?

I lost 80 lbs. through running, quit smoking and ran my first marathon, in 2011 at Walt Disney World. Since then I’ve developed a passion for helping others obtain the best version of themselves through enhancing their health and fitness. I’ve been married for 20 years to my high school sweetheart and have two beautiful children, ages 15 and and 11.

I was selected to serve on the Disney Parks Moms Panel and I hold my RRCA running coach certification. I’ve married my two passions, Disney and running, and developed the blog Run Disney Mom.On Run Disney Mom, I share running info, race recaps, product reviews and the scoop on Disney races.

I have my Master of Arts in Communications from the Queens University of Charlotte. You can check out my Digital Project portfolio for more information about my masters coursework.

I’m currently pursuing my MFA at Queens University of Charlotte and I’m an editorial assistant of the contemporary literary magazine QU.

I’m writing my first book and plan to publish it in 2018.

In my spare time, I write for Family Fun, Little Ones, Orbitz, Working Mother, My Carolina Town and Modern Parent. Review my writing portfolio to see examples of articles I’ve published.

I’m the author of several books, including:

Lunch, by me!

Culinary Duct Tape

Candy Around the World

Guilt-Free Cupcakes

A Pet for Emberly
