Stacey Stevenson often says she was born into a life of chaos. She was the product of teenage parents and witnessed fighting and abuse at an early age. Stacey’s life circumstances resulted in her dropping out of high school at the age of 17, which led to dead ends jobs, evictions, and near homelessness. At the age of 21, she was desperate to change her life. With only $70.00, she took a risk and moved to Dallas from her small town (about 400 miles away at the southern tip of Texas).
Stacey learned to bring order out of the chaos and overcame poverty, anxiety, and self-harm. Today, she is a successful speaker, senior corporate leader, co-founder of a women’s empowerment conference and LOYT – Life on your terms, a lifestyle brand. She’s the author of Black Girls Cut Too, a story documenting her time as a self-harmer. She shares her story through speaking and writing to help inspire others.
When Stacey is not working, you can find her serving on the Black Tie Dinner and Special Abilities Board of Directors, or helping underprivileged youth stay motivated by encouraging them to tap into their resilience.
Stacey has earned multiple technology and leadership certifications and holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Management. She has been married for 12 years and is the mother of twin 4-year old boys.
