Host Sherrilynne Starkie welcomes Stacey Diffin-Lafleur, a skilled and talented marketing and communications specialist, to the 50 Women Over 50 podcast.
This is a special episode because Sherrilynne’s guest is her ‘big’ sister Stacey Diffin-Lafleur, a woman who’s been a profound influence in our host’s life as she observed Stacey stepping into each new phase of life. Sherrilynne first learned about fashion, make up and music (especially David Bowie) from her sister. She modelled how to have a successful marriage. And she demonstrated her unique way of balancing a career and family.
Perhaps not so coincidently, Stacey and Sherrilynne have taken similar career paths. Stacey is an award-winning social and digital marketing pioneer and a talented writer and editor. She’s lived her whole life in Ottawa, raising her sons here and building lifelong friendships that she holds dear through each decade.
Stacey says, “I have a lot of opinions and I share them quite freely! I get involved in a lot of stuff.” And she shares this energy in this interview.
With more than two decades of advanced marketing experience, and as an award-winning social and digital media pioneer, Stacey is a recognized professional marketing communications leader. Her career has traversed public, private and third sector organizations including major IT and telecommunications companies, international not for profits and federal government organizations, among others.
She lives in Ottawa with her husband and when not at work or at a music festival, you’ll find her poolside with her three granddaughters.
