In the fall she will become a grandma for the first time when her oldest child has her first baby. This baby will begin the fifth generation of her family here in South Florida. Since she comes from a large family, Stacy understands family dynamics and inter-generational issues. She can relate to the issues surrounding caregiving, end of life care, and sibling challenges, just as much as she understands happy challenges with additions to the family through birth and marriage.
