    '22 Impact Award Winner: Stacey Miller, Vice President, Communications, Auto Care Association

    I’ve been in the aftermarket over five years now and I always wanted to be here. Growing up as the child of poor immigrants, we had no choice but to buy used cars and fix them ourselves when they weren’t working properly. I can remember frequently going to an AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts to look up parts from a paper catalog to fix the family car so my parents could get to work. That was likely a big influence in my life, as I grew up loving cars and always has the desire to learn how to fix or modify them myself.
