BALLANTYNE | faces MICHELE L. STACK Birthplace: Fort Lee, Va. Job: Works in ��nance with the American Red Cross. What do you like most about your job? I previously worked for the Junior League of Charlotte. There���s much reward in working with nonpro��ts offering support to the people they serve. What���s your guilty pleasure? Trader Joe���s prosecco. Do you live in Ballantyne? Yes, on four acres off Lancaster Highway we affectionately refer to as ���The Ponderosa.��� My husband, Myers Park High wrestling coach Rick Stack, has done a wonderful job of renovating the place. What is your favorite Ballantyne-area restaurant? Red Bowl Asian Bistro (sushi). I also enjoyed recent trips to Vine and Blackthorne. What is your favorite outdoor activity? Running! Have completed many marathons and half marathons over the years, but the most special was running with my teenage daughters in the Charlotte Thunder Road half marathon last November. Describe your dream vacation. Would love to run the Marathon du Medoc in Bordeaux, France. The route goes through 59 vineyards. What would your theme song be for walking into a room? ���Teenage Daughters��� by Martina McBride or anything by Maroon 5. I would be rather caught dead than wear ____. A tattoo or piercings other than in my ears. What charitable organizations are you involved with? I have been a member of the Junior League of Charlotte for over 15 years and admire its commitment to serving children. I have also been involved with Girls on the Run and Getting2Tri. What is your biggest pet peeve? People teasing me about my ���ugly��� feet. I have runners feet; people with pretty feet ��nish in the back! Share something that someone would never guess about you.
