A native Northern Californian, Stacey received a BA in Information & Communication Studies from CSU Chico. After living for two years in Japan and six on the island of Maui, she and her two daughters now call Chico home. When her partner, Gerard, a 20 year resident, was prevented by U.S. Immigration from returning home in 2010, her combination of life experiences culminated with the “Bring Gerard Home” fundraising and legal campaign. She most recently worked as Music Director at her community radio station, KZFR 90.1 FM. Dedicated to promoting love, kindness and respectfulness, Stacey is a passionate co-founder of the Respectful Living Institute.
