She is the mother to one amazing son, three fantastic daughters, and two wonderful step-daughters. She has been blessed with many nieces and nephews. Stacie is the Behavioral Science Instructor at the Leech Lake Tribal College with responsibilities that include teaching Miikana (first-year experience course) and psychology courses. Prior to joining LLTC, Stacie worked in education and behavioral health at several organizations, including Boys & Girls Club of the Leech Lake Area, Lutheran Social Services, Minnesota Historical Society, Head Start, and Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. As a cultural instructor, Stacie provided training to children and professionals alike.
