Stacey grew up in Moses Lake WA as the daughter of a veterinarian and seed crop farmer/ag equipment salesman. From showing dairy heifers and breeding sows to growing seed crops and competing in 3-day eventing, she did it all. Finding an interest in the nutrition side of livestock, she earned a Masters in Ruminant Nutrition from Washington State University.
After starting a family and getting four kids off to school, she found Dairy Revenue Protection (DRP) as a way to combine her love for protecting customers livelihoods with her love for the dairy industry.
