About Me
Stacy is a textile and apparel specialist with a BS in Textile Development and Marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology and an MBA in Sustainable Systems from Bainbridge Graduate Institute at Pinchot University. She is actively reinventing the textile and apparel business model to preserve the future of apparel. After a diverse background working with both start-ups and large multi-national corporations like DuPont, Target, Eddie Bauer, and Rethink Fabric, Stacy launched Future Resource Collective (FRC), a collaboration hub and incubator for sustainable innovations in the apparel and textile industry. In 2014, FRC launched its first social purpose corporation, Evrnu, which uses a patent-pending technology that recycles cotton garment waste to create premium, renewable fiber. From her years in the field, Stacy brings a strong understanding of customer needs, deep knowledge of the industry's supply chain, and the creativity necessary to build trust and develop relationships in order to collectively solve tough issues. She skillfully combines vision and specialization to make new initiatives successful, and uses these strengths to facilitate collaboration with diverse stakeholders and drive innovations to fruition. Stacy has received the following recognitions for the Evrnu (formerly Loopool) technology: 2013 Regional Winner, Walmart Better Living Business Plan Challenge; 2014 Regional Winner, Walmart Better Living Business Plan Challenge; 2014 University of Washington Environmental Innovation Challenge, Honorable Mention; 2014 University of Washington Business Plan Challenge Investment Round Finalist; 2014 Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship, Wildcard Candidate, 2014 Grand Prize winner of SVP Fast Pitch, 2014 SVP Audience Choice Award, 2015 Seattle Lion's Den Best in Show
