Stacey Smith joined Business Leasing Associates, Inc. in 2015 as the Vice President overseeing customer and lender relationships.
Stacey is our second VT Hokie! She began editing after college, and she has spent the remainder of her career working with small businesses in writing, marketing, and accounting.
She first worked with BLA in 2008 when we financed equipment for her employer. She later worked with us again when we began a transition plan with another company. Though the transition didn't happen, we kept in touch with Stacey, and when she was ready for a change, she joined us a partner.
When Stacey isn't helping BLA's small business customers, she's supporting the small businesses local to her in the Shenandoah Valley, where she and her husband make their home with dogs, cats, and plenty of flowers.
In her free time Stacey volunteers with the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association and is also a voice supporting the need for early preventative cancer screenings. She enjoys hiking with her sister and husband, visiting U.S. National Parks and affiliated sites, and occasionally writes a blog about living in the valley.
