Stacey Wallace Benefiel has been a butcher, a baker and would totally entertain the idea of being a candlestick maker.
Over the past eighteen years she’s worked nearly fifty jobs, ninety percent of which were crappy. Along the way, she’s racked up several degrees in professions people don’t actually need degrees for and has filled out so much FAFSA paperwork that she can do it with her eyes closed.
From motel housekeeper, to fry cook, to Tower Records salesperson, Stacey has weathered her employment adventures with a smile on her face, uncomfortable shoes on her feet, and a double Jack and Coke in hand.
Her employment history gives new meaning to the phrase retail therapy.
