Mama Keiki "Hula" Stacy Weigle
UPDATE 03/2015: Relcoated from SE Florida to N Central WA, where it's gorgeous & DRY AIR!
Yep, I'm "that" Cheryl Stacy that went to Hillview Crest Elem, Barnard JHS (later Barnard/White), James Logan HS, Chabot College, Ohlone College, CalState & lived on Mission Bl. in Hayward for most of my childhood through my late teens (with frequent visits between fam in SF, Tahoe & throughout Hawaii). WHEW!
Known by my Chinese Fam as "Kiki", Hawaiian Fam as "Keiki" & There.com Fam as "Hula", I'm Mama Keiki or "Aunty" to those youngers & just "Mom" or "My Udder Mudder" to our kids (both blood & hanai'd).
After 27+ years in the tech industry, I have been blessed to be a Silicon Valley/Tech career vet from the late 1970's to date. My work provided me the opportunity to travel & live in many different places around the world, including Australia & Germany, as well as CA, NV, HI, IL, MN, & FL.
While with Baltimore Technologies, as Dir of BizDev & Sales Latin America/SE USA, I was relocated to South Florida. I then joined There, WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVED, & was honored to be on serve as their Dir of Community Events & Member Programs. There's no question that I am an avid fan of online gaming & virtual/social communities.
Since 1994, I've been battling RA &, since 2006, it has been attacking the lining of my heart & lungs, as well as my joints. In late 2009, I was diagnosed with Systemic & Cutaneous Lupus, in addition to the RA. Sjorgren's, Uveitis & Vitiligo, as well as Barrett's were added to my diagnoses in 2011. Certainly, life brings daily challenges & the gifts of lessons in life I am grateful for, along with the love & great support from fam & friends.
Speaking of fam, thankfully, I'm still the "apple" of my husband's eye & he is the same for me :) We are soul mates in our love & lives. We had our son when I was 44 & we are blessed to be a very happy fam with hubby's two older kids (along with immediate & extended fam).
Nowadays, I am gearing up to build a community living cooperative that's as sustainable & organic as possible. Someplace the people we love can call "home", as we stay connected to Mother Earth and Nature. I also do biz consulting for new start ups & product launches, as well as have a passion for offering wholistic & healthy life coaching, educational workshops, & performance arts, along
