Extra-Ordinary Life (XOL) is the realization of a dream by founder, Stacie Scott (Turner). Placed in foster care as a baby and subsequently adopted by a loving family, Stacie launched XOL to provide hope and opportunity to foster girls that have not yet been blessed with a permanent home and family.
STACIE SCOTT (TURNER)
Stacie’s passion for helping foster youth stems from her personal good fortune—being adopted by loving parents that provided a stable home life and access to education, travel and enrichment opportunities that instilled a positive self image and drive to succeed in life.
This blessing of family and exposure, kindled a deep desire to provide similar experiences to foster youth who lack these advantages; to inspire and position them to dream big and achieve despite the challenges of living in care. In July 2010, Extra-Ordinary Life took a group of foster girls on a cultural, educational and service oriented adventure to South Africa during the historic FIFA World Cup—a journey that Black Entertainment Television chronicled in a documentary (entitled "Extra-Ordinary Life: A Journey to South Africa") that has aired in 54 countries.
Stacie obtained her undergraduate degree in Finance from Howard University and a MBA from the Harvard University Graduate School of Business in 1996. Stacie has held positions in marketing and management with a number of large corporations including Procter & Gamble, the Sprint Corporation and BET Networks; before launching her own strategic marketing consulting firm. For the past 12 years, Stacie has been a top-producing residential sales agent generating over $180 million in career sales.
In recognition of her work with foster youth, Stacie was named a National Children's Ambassador for the American Humane Association. She has served as a board member of Bright Beginnings, Metro Teen-AIDS, and Southeastern University; and as a Mayoral Appointee to the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC). Stacie resides in Washington DC.
