Stacey Jefferies, FNP-BC

Master’s level Nurse Practitioner

Stacey Jefferies, FNP-BC is a Master’s level Nurse Practitioner born in St. Petersburg, FL. Stacey has a very unique story in which her destiny was to work at SaJune. Stacey says, “When I was 28 years old, I had my tubes tied. After that I had new onset hormonal imbalances including acne, weight gain, irritability, bloating, migraines and menstrual pain. My Primary care doctor put me on low dose Xanax for a few weeks and of course it didn't get fixed. That's when I discovered SaJune in 2004. The program with progesterone, nutrition and other steps resolved all my symptoms within 3 months! Why was this not offered mainstream? This was my inspiration to pursue education as a Nurse Practitioner to help people. I actively started to get educated about hormones, gut, nutrition, etc., which I continue researching to date. I just love it! The Nurse practitioner program helped me realize that I myself was in Adrenal Fatigue with a challenging living situation. So I became the master of fixing myself first and now I am excited to help you.”

She has a background in critical care and has always had an interest in hormone replacement. She has personal experience with how hormone imbalance can affect mood, energy, weight, and overall wellbeing, and has been on hormone replacement herself for over 20 years. Stacey enjoys reading about and researching diet, nutrition, hormones, and exercise. She loves visiting St. Pete beach as often as possible, and playing with her mini-Aussie Maverick and Chihuahua Marley. One of her favorite pass times is playing video games with her niece Roxie.
