Stacey was born and raised in a second-generation Russian Jewish family in Philadelphia, PA. She came to know the Lord in 1972, at the tender age of seven, through the testimony of her eight-year-old best friend!
Stacey went on to college and received her BA in Communications from Temple University in 1987. After a time of wandering away from the Lord, Stacey felt the Lord leading her back to Himself.
