Working as a journalist and freelance writer in the print and digital media industry for the past 14 years, Stacey has helped countless brands to tell their story in the media and therefore has gained enormous insight into how a strong brand identity can help businesses to stand out and attract their ideal customers.
In early 2020 Stacey opened, The Tribe, a small boutique coworking space for female entrepreneurs in Totnes. Having found that working from home can be a lonely and isolating experience that does not foster creativity and knowing many female entrepreneurs in a similar situation locally, Stacey decided to set up a dedicated space to allow women in business to come together in a supportive and collaborative environment that encourages growth.
In 2021, The Tribe won two business awards and Stacey was also a finalist in the Women in Business Awards.
