This coaching journey – along with her food safety technical training and experiences –inspired Jill to create a safe place of support, understanding, and growth for other food safety and quality professionals. It was in that moment the Food Safety Coach was born!

Stacy Idema

Professional Bio

I am an executive communication coach and trusted advisor working with small to medium size business owners, executives and leaders as the voice of reason, asking them the hard questions that will quickly raise money, make money or save money.


My experience is broad; as the daughter of two small business owners, held a 26-year career in corporate working with businesses as small as 40 up to Fortune 4 companies, and now a proud business owner of 4 years.


As a kid, dinners as a kid were quiet and stressful as my dad used dinner time as his trusted advisor. He was quiet until he wasn’t and then we worried about upsetting him. The kitchen table is not the ideal space to bring work; nor does it mitigate the ongoing stress of keeping clients happy, running a business, and employing healthy and happy humans.


In my corporate day job, I saw the same behavior corporate. Hands in head, deep sighs, closed door venting sessions and burnt-out executives looking for answers and to the daily challenges of living and working in the business. It takes a lot to work in and on your business.

Coaching niche:

If you are a business owner, leader or up and coming leader:

  1. Who desires a coach/trusted advisor to process the complex business challenges that are also impacting personal and/or family time
  2. Experiencing disruptive team dynamics and tension that is impacting productivity and business growth
  3. With a communication style that has gotten to where you are today, but will not get your where you want to go (e.g.: too abrasive)

Let’s chat! I offer an hour initial consultation. Coaching is as much about the journey as it is the relationship.

What excites you about the Females in Food Community?

I’m honored to be a part of the community Angela has developed and transformed for women! The group has welcomed me with open arms, I’ve loved engaging with the groups, have learned so much about the Food industry and made new friends. I look forward to the future of the group, the opportunity to continue adding value and growing with those around me.
