I’m a woman who wears many hats, but not in the literal sense! First and foremost, I’m a mom of two beautiful girls, ages 16 and 10. They are my world and I couldn’t be more proud of them!
I’m also an ex-military wife. Over the past 16 years, I’ve lived in four different provinces across Canada. Currently, I’m located in my hometown of Pembroke, Ontario where we planted our roots and intend on staying. Small town living is perfect for us.
I have a business background and studied at both Algonquin College and University of New Brunswick. Before becoming a blogger, I worked full-time as an accountant while pursuing my CGA (Certified General Accountant) designation. In 2007, I made a hard decision to leave my job and become a stay-at-home mom.
It wasn’t until 2008 that I became a blogger. One day I just decided to write and Simply Stacie was born. My blog began as a hobby and something to keep me busy while my girls were at school. I’ve always loved to write so having a blog seemed like a natural thing to do and also gave me a creative outlet.
Simply Stacie has evolved over the years from a strictly reviews and giveaways to a lifestyle blog featuring recipes, crafts, DIY, household tips & tricks along with a sprinkling of products and giveaways! I’m passionate about helping others and hope that I can inspire people to create delicious recipes for their family, save money and discover new products and services they may not have known about.
