A native of south Alabama, Felicia grew up in a large, loving, rambunctious family in Mobile. She graduated from Baldwin County High School and earned an academic and athletic scholarship to Spring Hill College where she played soccer and graduated with a BA in English. Her career includes 11 years with a privately held office equipment and software company, holding many positions including VP of Sales, Texas. Felicia was instrumental in the growth and expansion of the company into the Dallas and Houston markets. She earned an MBA from Southern Methodist University (SMU) during her time in Dallas. For the past several years, Felicia has been a high-performing sales and market development professional in the medical device industry.
Felicia is an active community volunteer, serving on a nonprofit board, at local hospitals and with children’s and education charities in Mobile, Birmingham, and Dallas. She currently volunteers with Alabama Possible, Birmingham Education Foundation and performs contract work for the Community Foundation of Birmingham’s LGBTQ Fund. In 2017, she was a nominee for the United Way’s inaugural Ignite Awards celebrating passionate volunteers in the Birmingham area.
Felicia and her wife, Christy, will celebrate their 16 year anniversary in late 2017. They have energetic twin daughters, Helen and Harper, who begin first grade at Mountain Brook Elementary this fall. They will also begin their second year in the Daisy patrol of Girl Scout Troop 350, which their moms will help lead. The Stewarts are members of the congregation of Baptist Church of the Covenant in Birmingham. The family loves traveling (“going on adventures” – Helen), spending time outdoors (“when it’s not too hot” – Harper) and visiting friends and family across the south.
