Meet Stacy Robello

Stacy RobelloHow many kids do you have, and what are their ages?

I have 3 children, ages 12, 6, and 3. I also have a bonus daughter who is 27, and she has two children of her own. So yes, I’m a grandma, too!


What do you do for a living?

My career in working with older adults started at age 21. However, my college degree was in Education, so I chose to pursue that for a short time. In 2006, opportunities opened up for me to return to in-home care for seniors, and just a few years ago, my husband and I became the owners of the local “Home Instead” office. We employ Home Health Aides that help older adults live as independently as possible wherever they call home.

What do you do to reset and recharge, especially with the craziness of life right now?

I feel like I’m constantly moving or thinking. So my idea of restoration is just sitting still for an extended amount of time. Relaxing on the beach, on the front porch of my house, or even a power nap are all top choices.

What do you like about raising a family here?

There are so many reasons, and I could go on and on about, but I would say the comradery among the community.

What is challenging about raising a family here?

Two words. Hurricane season.

What is your favorite local thing to do/place to go?

One of the main reasons we love to live here is being close to the beaches/water.

Stacy RobelloIs there a hidden gem in Pensacola you love?

If you haven’t tried Single Fin Cafe at Waterboyz surf shop, then you’re missing out. It’s also a great place to pick up local gifts, and the best part is that they have activities for kids too!

How can Pensacola better serve you as a mom?

I would like to see Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market come into our area. It would help in so many ways for our community, but most of all encourage people to make better food choices for better health.

What piece of advice would you give to mothers right now?

There’s so much pressure to keep up or do more, and you can lose yourself in doing that. After baby #3, I’ve realized that self-care should be top of the list. If you don’t put your health first, you won’t be available for the ones who need you most. Take care of you!

Tell us about your favorite thing to do in your downtime?

It sounds cliche, but just good old quality time with my husband and kids. Whether it’s at the house, or the beach, on our boat, or a Wahoos game. Making memories together is a priority.

Anything else you would like us to know about yourself that makes you uniquely you?

I have overcome many challenges in my life, but the hardest one has been finding work/life HARMONY at the height of my career raising a young family. It’s a rewarding yet exhilarating accomplishment!

The Navy brought Jen and her family to Pensacola in 2018 following a 3-year tour in Belgium. Born and raised in the Midwest, Jen’s career path took her to Washington, D.C., after college, where she lived until she married her husband, Tim, in 2007. Balancing family and career against the backdrop of military life has made her appreciate the importance of friendships, connections, and finding your “mom tribe” wherever “home” may be. While living in Belgium, Jen took on her most challenging role to date, that of a stay-at-home-mom to her two sons, Timothy and Charlie. In this position, she has been forced to face her fear of cooking, has learned that you never “catch up” on laundry and that she continuously works longer hours for less pay! Fueled by coffee, Pure Barre, and dry shampoo, she feels like she’s “winging it” when it comes to motherhood most of the time, but couldn’t imagine a more rewarding journey. She continues to learn from her kids every day.
