An Alabama native, Felicia grew up in a large, loving, middle-class family in Mobile and Baldwin County. She earned an academic and athletic scholarship to Spring Hill College where she played soccer and graduated with a BA in English. She also holds an MBA from Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas. Felicia is a business executive with an award-winning career in sales, marketing, and management in the software, office equipment and medical device industries.
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. In 2017, she was a nominee for the United Way’s inaugural Ignite Awards celebrating passionate volunteers in the Birmingham area. She is a progressive, pragmatic, principled and positive leader who loves her home state and expects more from its leaders.
Felicia and her wife, Christy, recently celebrated their 16-year anniversary. They have energetic twin daughters, Helen and Harper, who attend Mountain Brook Elementary. They are also in the Daisy patrol of Girl Scout Troop 350, which their moms 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.
