Stacie grew up on a cattle and hay ranch just north of Red Lodge, MT where she developed her deep appreciation for farming, ranching, horses and the western way of life. Part of a 4th generation Montana ranching family, Stacie’s commitment to preserving the western lifestyle has never wavered.
In 2000, Stacie graduated from Northwest College with an Associates degree in Agricultural Business. Rather than returning to school to complete her bachelor’s degree, she went to work for Cottonwood Ranch in Silesia, MT where she managed the show horse barn and rode reining horses for several years. Shortly after leaving Cottonwood Ranch, Stacie married Bruce Wells, an Oregon boy whose family also has a deep appreciation for ranching and horses.
In 2005, Stacie and Bruce, along with her father Dennis, started Montana Equine Transport. Montana Equine Transport served horse folks from Coast to Coast for more than 10 years and became the preferred hauler for a number of the country’s top ranch and performance horse sales. During those 10 years, Stacie did everything from scheduling and marketing to driving.
During that same time, Stacie also went to work for a cutting horse trainer and was fortunate to be involved in the Switchback Cutting Horse operation for a few years. Her time spent riding cutters really solidified her passion and appreciation for working horses. Stacie and Bruce have trained and sold a number of rope horses over the years, and continue to do so today.
In 2015, Stacie became a licensed real estate agent and in 2017 she became a licensed Broker. In 2018 she joined the team at Landmark of Billings as a Broker/Owner where she has the support of over 100 years combined experience in the Farm/Ranch division alone. Stacie focuses on Rural Residential and Farm Ranch properties.
Stacie and Bruce have 3 children, Colt and his twin sisters Paizlee and Preslee. In their spare time they enjoy roping, rodeo, camping and fishing.
