Stacey began working in this field as a Respite Care Provider in 1998. Over a six-year period, 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. In 2006, she developed and 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 a 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. As a representative of The Arc-Solano, Stacey was part of the Year 10 cohort in Leadership Vallejo in 2017. She is also an active member of the Vallejo Chamber of Commerce, 100 Women Who Care About Solano County, and is a voting member of North Bay Regional Center’s Vendor Advisory Committee. She and her daughter, Sofia, are also regular participants of the Solano County Board of Supervisors’ Commission on Women and Girls monthly meeting. Additionally, she is a member of the Cave Language Academy PTA.
Stacey is honored to become The Arc-Solano’s Executive Director as of February 29, 2020, after Michael Huckins retired.
