One of Stacy's fondest memories of working in the pet industry is the first cat show she attended in 1991, where she first fell in love with the Cornish Rex breed. She adopted her first Cornish Rex cat , a pet quality red and white tabby male named Jordan, just a few months later. While all her cats are special, Jordan will forever hold a dear place in her heart.

Stacy earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from California State University, Long Beach, with an emphasis in public relations and a minor in computer studies. She lives in Southern California with two adorable Cornish Rex cats, Carson and Evita, and playful red tabby domestic shorthair named Jack.
