This love of cooking was solidified at age 11 when Stacey first watched the Lifeftime Television show “The Main Ingredient” with Chef Bobby Flay.
During high school, Stacey had various food service industry jobs, including one at a local smoothy shop were she was the supervisor of actress Megan Fox.
After graduating from the culinary program at her high school in Stuart Florida in 2004, Stacey enrolled in the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University’s North Miami campus where she received her Associates and Bachelors Degrees.

In 2015 they relocated to Massachusetts where Victor had accepted an employment opportunity at a private country club in South Hamilton as the Executive Chef.
Stacey has her own cookie business Sprinkles by Stacey and writes a chef-inspired food and lifestyle blog under the same name, where she shares recipes from her experience in the culinary industry, travels, and memories from her childhood.
