Stacey J. Aswad was born in the small city of Binghamton, New York, where dance was her first passion. At the age of five she began participating in competitive artistic rollerskating and later won the national championship in the sport five different times. In order to assist with her training in the sport, Aswad joined a professional ballet company which led up to her attending New York City’s Julliard School. There, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance.
Stacey Aswad First Steps
Upon graduation, Aswad headed out to the Midwestern United States. She both performed ballet, jazz and modern dance professionally, and taught dance to adolescents at The Youth ‘Performing Arts School‘ in Louisville. It was during this time that she turned her attention to acting. She booked several local commercials and voiceovers in Charlotte, North Carolina before landing some national commercials and eventually a role as Andi Ramsey on the television show 7th Street Theater.
She landed a new role in 2005 hosting the television show Walt Disney’s Top 7 Must Sees. Her appearance in this role led to another fantastic opportunity to come her way: hosting Richard Kraft’s documentary ‘Finding Kraftland‘. Before the documentary even premiered in Los Angeles, she managed to land roles in the comedy Carrie Ann’s Kiss and the feature length dramatic film Me & You, Us, Forever, the latter being a role as one of the female leads. Meanwhile, the feature length documentary won several awards and appeared in more than 70 film festivals across the globe.

With these talent agencies, she has done work with AT&T, Clairol, McDonald’s, Toyota, and many more popular brands. She hosted games for the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks, revving up the crowd.
In 2009, Aswad began to host Must Do Disney, a Resort TV campaign show for Walt Disney World. In 2012, she produced the show VO Buzz Weekly for aspiring voice actors. That same year, she became the In-Show Announcer for the show Family Game Night, a show that brings together families to play games and win prizes, and even won the 2012 Daytime Emmy Winner for Outstanding Game Show Host for her performance on that show.
