Meet Stacie Williams: The 2011 Pfister Narrator

Posted by on May 6, 2011 | 4 Comments

With a love of stories and storytelling, Stacie Williams has worked at a local Milwaukee bookstore for more than five years, and has experience in travel writing and blogging. She studied theater at University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee and is active in its creative writing program.

Williams was chosen to serve as narrator based on her writing style and outgoing personality from a significant pool of qualified applicants by a review panel, which included publisher of The Business Journal Serving Greater Milwaukee, Mark Sabljak; executive director of the East Town Association, Kate Borders; Judith Moriarty, a longtime local writer; and representatives from the hotel, including Julie Ferris, The Pfister’s first-ever narrator.

“To say I’m excited to be the next Pfister Narrator would be inaccurate and a little bit of an understatement,” said Williams. “More accurate would be to say that I’m a little nervous, as there’s great pressure in telling people’s stories with truth and honor. I am also more than excited, I’m thrilled: this is a chance to share the love of my adopted city of Milwaukee, to do so through such a beautiful historic establishment and via the voices of those who, often, like me, are not natives either.”

Stacie will be sharing the stories of hotel guests and employees on The Pfister Hotel Blog twice a week for the next six months.

    What a lovely young girl! Bright, energetic, lots of personality. She looks like she will be a great asset to the hotel. I look forward to reading her blogs.

  • Thank you! I hope you enjoy reading the stories of the people who make the Pfister such a fascinating place to visit/stay.

  • The Pfister has once again managed to corral a top notch talent… Stacie William’s prose brings this classic hotel to the forefront of the modern traveler’s palette for luxury and unequaled personal care. Her ability to capture the life evoked from this classic local is both enviable and admirable.

    • Such eloquent a compliment could only come from another writer. I hope you enjoy the posts, and feel free to drop me a line with any thoughts and/or suggestions. Writers should always be open to feedback from other writers, and I’d like to think I am one of those types of writers. Thanks!
