Stacy has been part of the CHEK family since April 2000 when she was hired as a fill-in, weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter. She’s still convinced she only got the job because her mini-van was burglarized the evening she auditioned but something clearly stuck. Through a number of different positions in sports and then news, and several changes of station ownership, she is now a proud employee-owner and has been the anchor of CHEK News at 5 since 2015.

Her journey to CHEK meandered through a childhood spent mainly on horseback, performing musical theatre or watching sports. She graduated from Belmont Secondary School and went on to earn an Applied Communication diploma from Camosun College and a Fine Arts Degree in theatre from the University of Victoria. In between those two educational events, she got her first TV job in 1989 at CJDC in Dawson Creek, B.C. She did news, sports and weather with an electric typewriter, a set covered in grey carpet, a magnetic weatherboard and most definitely no teleprompter.

Away from work, Stacy is living the dream, in Metchosin, with her husband and daughter. Her parents and her childhood home are right next door. Her son has flown the nest, but not too far, he’s settled in Langford. She loves curling (just ask Jeff King), eating (just ask her husband), cooking, fishing, camping, travelling, spending time at the family trailer by the ocean, walking with her rescue dog Jonesy, and trying to convince her rescue cats Winnie and Tigger that they aren’t in charge.

Stacy is so grateful for her family, friends, and colleagues; for her home on beautiful Vancouver Island; and for the ongoing support of our loyal CHEK viewers.
