All About Stacy

Born, raised, and deeply rooted in Bradenton, Florida, I’m not just the founder of this dedicated laundry service; I’m a proud Lakewood Ranch High School alum, a devoted wife, and a mother to four incredible children. My journey into entrepreneurship is fueled by a simple desire: to build a thriving local business that supports my family and serves the community I love. Celebrating over a decade of marriage and partnership with my amazing husband, we’ve embraced the challenge of raising a family and growing a business right here in the heart of Manatee County. Join us on this journey as we bring convenience, quality, and a personal touch to laundry services in Bradenton and beyond.

A Little Background

Reflecting on my path to becoming the founder of Dirty Laundry Dispatch, it’s clear how much determination and resilience have played a part in my life. Despite a difficult childhood, I never let go of my dreams. I pushed through, setting my sights on law school, where I poured every ounce of my effort into succeeding. That hard work paid off when I graduated in the top 10 of my class, an achievement made all the more remarkable because it happened just 17 days before my third child was born.

However, my challenges didn’t end there. My joy at welcoming another child into the world was tempered by the realization that he faced his own battles with health and physical issues. The first year and a half of his life was a whirlwind of doctor’s appointments and physical therapy sessions. At times, it felt like I spent more time in medical offices than at home with my family. It was a period of my life where I had to make a tough call. Seeing my child’s needs, I knew that my career plans had to be put on hold. My family needed me more than the legal world did at that moment.

The Pandemic Struck

Just as things seemed to be settling, the world was hit by the pandemic, closing schools and bringing my life to another turning point. Suddenly, I found myself not just as a mom, but as a homeschool teacher to my older children. Amidst this upheaval, my resolve to fulfill my dream of becoming a lawyer didn’t waver. I registered for the bar exam, arguably facing the most tumultuous time to do so in the history of the Florida Bar.

Against all odds, and amidst the chaos, I passed. The victory was sweet, but the reality of my situation hadn’t changed. With a young child still vulnerable health-wise and unable to attend daycare, plus the added responsibility of two kids now learning from home, the path I had envisioned for myself took a new direction. This period wasn’t just about overcoming challenges; it was a defining moment that tested my resilience and determination, shaping the future in ways I hadn’t anticipated.

Inspired To Create A Business

It was in one of those seemingly mundane moments that the spark for Dirty Laundry Dispatch was ignited. While on a Zoom call with a friend, both of us engaging in the routine task of folding laundry as we watched “The Great British Bake Off,” she expressed a simple wish: “All I want from Santa is someone to do my laundry for me!” That casual remark struck a chord with me, and it was then that the idea for Dirty Laundry Dispatch came to life. This moment of connection and shared desire for convenience in our busy lives led to the creation of a service dedicated to making life a little easier for everyone. It’s amazing how a simple conversation can lead to the birth of a new venture.

What Else Do I Enjoy?

Away from the hustle of Dirty Laundry Dispatch and the whirlwind of parenting, I cherish my moments of leisure and adventure. My downtime is a blend of relaxation and creativity—whether it’s getting lost in the latest Netflix series, engaging in the strategic play of board games, or immersing myself in the detailed assembly of a Lego set. These activities not only offer me a respite from my daily responsibilities but also spark joy and satisfaction in seeing a task through to completion.

Travel holds a special place in my heart as well. It’s the thrill of exploration and the richness of experiencing new cultures that drive my love for travel. Each journey challenges my perspectives and encourages me to embrace the vast diversity of our world. Beyond just a break from routine, traveling is about seizing the moment, stepping out of my comfort zone, and engaging with the unknown. It’s these experiences that fuel my creativity and inspiration, not only enriching my personal life but also enhancing my approach to business and family.
