Kacie was born outside of Philadelphia, but has called Sussex County her home since 1995. Kacie graduated as valedictorian from Woodbridge High School in 2006 and earned her bachelor’s degree from York College of Pennsylvania in 2010, with a minor in Entrepreneurship. After almost 10 years in the restaurant industry, home loans found Kacie in 2017. Answering the call to serve her community, she became a licensed Mortgage Loan Officer in 2018 and eventually professionally partnered with Lori Martin in 2019 to form the #LendingLadies of Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, where together they serve over 200 families a year. She has been involved with the SCAOR Affiliates since her early days with the company and have participated in their community service events over the years, but formally joins Sussex Strong in 2023, serving as the board’s Secretary. Additionally, she volunteers for Women’s Council of Realtors and Habitat for Humanity, and you can find her most often donating her time to the shelter animals at the Brandywine Valley SPCA, Georgetown Campus. Kacie lives at home in Milford, DE with her husband, Justin, and their German Shepherd, Killian Gauge.
