She recently served as president of the Travel Industry Association of Kansas. She’s active with the 5.4.7 Arts Center and teaches art classes to all ages, and is a talented artist herself! Stacy helped organize a local PowerUp group.

She says, “Rural communities have an amazing opportunity right now to show the world our value. We might not be for everyone but we are not less than just because we are small. I am passionately Rural by Choice and want to work for the sustainability of the rural communities we call home. I love every place I have had the chance to explore across the state, but in the last few years my favorites have been the experiences I've shared with my husband and kids.”
