STACEY M. SAUNDERS
Stacey Saunders established roots in the Pacific Northwest after graduating from Miami University (Oxford, OH) in 1996 and Cumberland School of Law (Birmingham, AL) in 2000. Stacey spent part of her childhood in Singapore and worked as a consultant for global companies before deciding to practice law locally, using her business experience and contract negotiation skills to benefit small business owners. Her work is driven by the belief that people work better in collaborative settings where they are engaged in creating practical, lasting solutions. Stacey was certified by the Washington Mediation Association in 2009 and has successfully mediated a range of employment, land use, and contract disputes. She has recently expanded her practice to include dependency and termination matters.
Stacey enjoys using her professional skills to benefit the Kitsap community. As the mother of two busy tween/teens, she is especially drawn to projects that promote youth development, including the YMCA’s Kitsap Mock Trial Team, CKSD’s Board Advisory Panel, and Central Stage Theatre’s capital campaign for a new community/school theater. Stacey was appointed by the Kitsap County Commissioners to the CK Community Council in 2015 and elected Chair in 2017-18. She was named a YWCA Woman of Achievement for her contributions to the community.
