Modern Mom – Stacey Knox

There’s nothing better than the Modern Mom referral. We call them “love letters,” and they usually come with an inspiring story and a desire to shine light on someone so deserving. Meet Stacey Knox – a local MoPa who travels to Rwanda each April as part of her passion to aid women’s global health. Match that with her love for family and a chic, yet sensible style, and it’s easy to see why we received that love letter.
