Welcome to the executive team behind
Stacey’s career has taken her from the broadcast industry as an on-air personality to Professional Sports Sales for both the Detroit Red Wings and the PGA TOUR. She currently holds a Director, Sales position for a PGA event in Detroit. Her entrepreneurial drive began with fashion in the maternity wear category, where she felt it was time to showcase the belly, not bury it under a tent of material. With form fitting, comfortable, fashion options for pregnant women. She Co-founded the Detroit Pride Cheerleaders (the “Unofficial” Lion’s Cheerleaders) in the early 2000’s to give Detroit Lion fans something to finally cheer about.
Her constant pursuit of pushing boundaries in all areas of her personal and professional life, her passion for golf, getting more women on the golf course and love of fashion, have brought her to this defining moment. “Not one woman should have to sacrifice her personality, femininity or quite frankly, their sexiness, to step on a golf course!” With years of experience on tap, drive, ambition, knowledge of the golf industry and pure exhaustion trying to find a decent golf outfit to showcase her style... LATONA was founded. “We are going to change the face of what women wear on the golf course. I’m done waiting for someone else to do it for us!”
“You can have classy, sporty, sexy and functional in one garment. We are about to show you how!!”
