  • Genesis Miguel


    I'm Genesis Miguel, a 20-year-old who became involved in advocacy at 16. I've always valued being an advocate for ALL of my community. Joining The Arc-Solano at 18 as a literacy tutor, I gained a deeper understanding of supporting and empowering our clients. I joined as a Board Member-at-Large in 2024 and I'm excited to grow in my role as a board member!

  • Gregory Thomas

    Gregory is our newest Board Member. Greg was born and raised in Livermore, CA. He graduated from Livermore High in 1991. Greg also lived in Atwater with his family and then in Mariposa County before moving to Vallejo to live with his nephew. Gregory began attending the ACT program in February of 2023 and has had a great time. He loves going on all of the outings. His favorites include the CA State Fair, the Geyser in Calistoga, and the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco. Greg also enjoys participating in our Art@Arc classes as he loves to build miniatures. 

    Gregory likes to ride his bike around town and he enjoys being as independent as possible. For instance, he makes sure he does his own laundry and keeps his room clean. Gregory is excited to join the board as it will be a new experience and get him out of his comfort zone. 

  • Stacey Martinez

    Stacey began working in the I/DD field as a Respite Care Provider in 1998. Over six years, she provided respite to over 75 clients with a wide variety of developmental disabilities. In 2004, Stacey became a Service Coordinator at Bay Respite Care and matched families with new respite workers.  In 2006, she assisted with the development of and then managed a respite program that provided services in five counties to over 800 families and employed over 500 Respite Care Providers. Bay Respite Care shared a building with The Arc-Solano from 2000-2012, so she got to know both Arc-Solano staff and consumers during this time. 

    Stacey first joined the Arc-Solano as a Board Member in 2013. After earning her Master’s degree in Nonprofit Administration from the University of San Francisco, she made the move from Board Member to staff member in November 2014 as the Director of Services. In this position, Stacey provided support to all our service programs and directly supervised our newest core program, Tailored Day Service. 

    As part of The Arc-Solano's succession plan, in 2016 Stacey became the Associate Executive Director to learn the agency inside and out. Mike Huckins retired at the end of February 2020 and Stacey's first day as the new ED was February 29, 2020.

    Stacey takes to heart her role of representing The Arc-Solano in the community. She was part of the Year 10 cohort (2017)  in Leadership Vallejo and she frequently participates in Vallejo Chamber of Commerce events. She also spent 6 years as a voting member of North Bay Regional Center's Vendor Advisory Committee, and from 2022 - 2024, Stacey served as co-chair of the Committee.  Stacey loves being a member of Soroptimist International of Vallejo and enjoyed serving 2 years as Secretary and 2 years as President of the Cave Language Academy PTA. She lives in Vallejo with her partner, Alex, and their daughter, Sofia.

  • Marianita Vieira

    In 2006, Marianita, known as “Mary” at The Arc-Solano, started working with people with I/DD as a part-time vocational counselor, while pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.  At Integrated Community Services (ICS) in San Rafael, she provided employment support to clients at a variety of venues, including restaurants, grocery stores, and even at an authentic cheese factory. Marked by her delightful experiences at ICS, she went back to the field in 2016, when she was offered to work as a Tailored Day Instructor at the Arc-Solano by a friend who was leaving the agency.

    Since then, Mary has devoted her work and education to The Arc-Solano and the people we serve. First, as Tailored Day Instructor, Mary provided direct support to clients in areas of community inclusion, college assistance, volunteering, daily living skills and more. Then as a Resources and Training Instructor, in addition to direct services, she created and provided training materials to clients and staff about subjects such as autism, disabilities and health. Now as our newest Director of Services, she will oversee the agency’s three core programs: ACT, TS and TDS. In preparing for her position, Mary has completed an Autism Spectrum Disorders Professional Concentration Program at U.C. Davis Extension, and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis at Touro University.

  • Tami Huizen

    Tami’s history with the Arc-Solano began long before she was hired. Her little brother had Down Syndrome and participated in the Arc-Solano’s infant based program, Leapfrog, in the late 1970’s. Later, her family adopted a baby girl with Down Syndrome who also attended Leapfrog. Between her siblings’ participation and her mother’s serving on the Board of Directors from 1980-1987, she grew up familiar with the agency and its mission. After graduating with her Bachelor’s degree, Tami worked different jobs, including as an ILS Instructor in the east bay, a store manager, and a respite worker at Jody & His Friends.

    Tami has worked for the Arc-Solano since August of 1994. She was originally hired as an ACT Instructor. After 12 years in ACT, she worked as an Instructor for both ACT and Transitional Service as her Spanish speaking skills were needed by a few TS consumers. Eventually, she was promoted to Program Coordinator for TS and ACT. In late 2009, the decision was made to split the position and Tami’s responsibilities are now exclusively for the ACT program and facility.

  • Jeninne Grigsby

    After receiving her associate’s degree from Solano Community College, and her bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University, Jeninne began her work at the Arc-Solano in 2015. Within the Transitional Services department she made it her goal to provide support and diligent instruction to the consumers she assisted, looking to enrich their lives as much as her own. Jeninne feels particularly tied to the population she services due to her younger brother, who is a participant in The Arc-Solano’s ACT day program.

    After four years of experience in the Transitional Services department, Jeninne accepted the position of Supervisory Instructor. She looks forward to leading the department towards the Arc-Solano’s mission statement and elevating the lives of all participants.
