Stacie Vanags is all about keeping her cup full. Literally and figuratively. She’s a big tea drinker, and believes it’s a conduit to storytelling. But as an analogy, she can’t help others unless her cup is full, and a he works to remind people to keep their own cups overflowing every day. As a health worker who navigates the corporate world, Stacie focuses on mental wellness and breaking down the stigma attached to it with companies and employers. While hosting the Salted Spirit Podcast, she discusses surfing and wellness (especially mental wellness) with a wide variety of guests. The Inertia’s Zach Weisberg caught up with Stacie at her property, Tequila Farms, in Ventura, California where she talked to him from her mobile studio, a van aptly named Salty Carmela.
