Associate Professor of Marketing
College of Business
In the first semester of my first year in my PhD program, Stacey’s paper, “When Healthy Food Makes You Hungry,” was included in the syllabus for our seminar. I was in absolute awe when I looked at the first page and saw that this piece of exceptional research, which was not only a lead article in a premier marketing journal but was selected as a key piece of literature for doctoral seminars, was written by a doctoral candidate. I now have the immense pleasure to be Stacey’s colleague, and she continues to motivate me!
Stacey is an exceptional scholar whose research has been published in the top marketing, business, and psychology journals. As my co-mentor, Stacey has been an important factor in my development as an assistant professor. She has played an active role in my growth, recommending me for roles that will help to advance my career. As a mentor, she is consistently open, present, and encouraging in assisting areas of my career development. She is also a leader who champions for her colleagues and fosters equality. Stacey is an excellent scholar, leader, mentor, and friend. Qualities that make her truly an inspiration!
