With obesity rates at 69% for adults and 18% of children in the United States, Stacey is concerned about the projections that this generation of children will be the first who will have a shorter life-expectancy than their parents. As a national speaker and trainer on food addiction and treatment Stacey is passionate about being part of the movement to provide this missing piece to turning the tide of obesity epidemic in our county. With a background in addiction treatment, Stacey’s confidence in the human spirit’s ability to rise above addiction fuels her optimism that people can and do recover from food addiction.
