In the summer of 2005, six women made national news when they appeared on a Times Square billboard, dressed only in their underwear. While other nearby billboards features actresses and supermodels, this one, promoting Dove brand products, promoted real women with real curves and the nation went wild. Dove’s mission was “to make more women feel beautiful every day by widening the stereotypical theme of beauty and by inspiring women to take great care of themselves.”
Suddenly, Stacy, an industrial organizational psychology major at DePaul University, was thrust into the national spotlight. As one of the real women featured in the ad campaign, Stacy quickly emerged as a spokeswoman for healthy body image. She appeared on the Today Show, CNN, Ellen, Dr. Phil, Tyra, and Oprah (twice).
Since then Stacy has committed her life and career to helping women feel great about themselves. Stacy lives in Chicago, IL with her husband, Tim and pup, Dyson. She works full-time as a speaker, consultant, and coach to empower women everywhere.
