Stacey Bruss

People's Choice Award

1.Tell us why anyone would want come to your hometown?
Anyone coming to my hometown of Erie MI, will soon see the beauty of Lake Erie, the smallest of Michigan’s Great Lakes. You can spend the day on a fishing charter reeling in walleye and perch making that perfect catch an enjoyable moment forever, or eating lunch with the locals while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Luna Pier lighthouse and peninsula.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your closet and why?
In my closest, I hold two treasures close to my heart. First is my grandmothers ring that was given to me when I was a young girl. I have worn that ring for some of my momentous occasions and always keeps her close to my heart. The second is a photo album that my mother gave to me right before we had our daughter Brea, 7 years ago. It shares the 5year journey that it took to make a dream become a reality with the birth of our daughter.

3.What do you love to cook and why?
While I am always trying to cook new things, my favorite is White Chicken Chili . It is a cold Michigan winter must have and something we look forward to during the winter months. It has now become a tradition in our house, plus it is quick and easy to cook!

4.If you had an extra hour each day, what would you do?
If I were blessed with an extra hour a day, I would spend it having uninterrupted time with my husband Brett. As a Consultant for an International organization, his busy schedule means the time we spend together is always cherished and something we look forward too. Whether going to our favorite local pizza parlor, or going on a bike ride, we would have fun spending quality time together.

5.Describe the dirtiest job you have ever had to do?
While in High School, my first job was working at Baker’s shoe store. Although I loved the perks of getting a 40% off discount, and owned over 300 pairs of shoes, playing with customers feet was not always fun! One time I even sold a pair of shoes right off of my own feet!
