In 2012, she received her bachelor’s degree in gender studies from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.

Furthering this commitment, Stacey pursued her master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in LGBTQIA+ affirmative psychotherapy from Antioch University in Los Angeles.
