Stacy loves experimenting in the kitchen and developing tasty meals to enjoy with family and friends.  Her style of food changed recently to more healing foods as she battled fatigue, auto immune disease and high cholesterol.  When doctors had no answers other then medication, she began to change her lifestyle to reduce stress and change her diet to add more whole food ingredients that are packed with nutrients.  As Chief Flavor Officer, she knows that what you put on your fork matters and found that you can eat a nutritious diet without sacrificing taste.  She is excited to share meals with the retreat participants.  When Stacy isn’t experimenting in the kitchen, she enjoys being outdoors and enjoying the beauty of nature.

Maria is a graduate right out of high school heading to SUNY Adirondack for resort management and business. Maria joined The Yoga in the Adirondacks team as an intern in 2021. When Maria isn't running around chasing the donkeys or weeding the gardens you can find her inside learning from Rhodella about business and marketing. Maria loves being at The Divine Acres and has been able to expand her knowledge from this opportunity that has been given to her.
