In 1987, Stacey Williams got her Real Estate license and became a “behind the scenes” business partner to her husband John. From answering office phones, to running errands, to meeting inspectors at properties, she has done it all. But what she has really enjoyed is researching everything and anything to find the information John has needed for Real Estate and his online companies.
With a teaching degree in Elementary Education, Stacey has always loved information, finding it and sharing it! History is one of her interests and St. Louis is rich with unique history. So many historical figures and many important events – those that you learn about in school - made their impact on our growing nation right here in St. Louis. So, when the opportunity arose to become the Director of Research for Information St. Louis, which would combine digging deep into St. Louis history and then sharing it on an online platform, it was a perfect fit.
Stacey maintains two important products of Information St. Louis: StLouisCalendar.com and InfoStLouis.com.
Stacey is married to John Williams. They have two grown and married children who live out of state. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering at her church as the Director of the Information Team, taking walks with John and their dog Dixie, working out in her yard, reading, cooking and taking trips to visit her children.
