Before joining NRHA, Stacey worked in construction project management for more than 10 years. In her role of Director of Community Development, Stacey strives to make a positive impact on housing needs through the development of essential industry partnerships and building community relationships across rural Nevada.
Stacey has been working toward her Bachelor of Science in Business and Administration, as well as completing her human resources certifications. In the last year, she has attained her HR Rep Certification, Essential Management Skills Certification, Society for Human Resource Management-Certified Professional Certification (SHRM-CP), as well as an Advanced Leadership Professional Certification through the University of Nevada, Reno.
Stacey and her family moved to the Carson Valley in 2014, and started searching for work in a different field, preferably a field involving service to her community. “After being fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom for a few years, starting back into the workforce, I knew I wanted to work with a greater purpose in mind. I wanted to work in an area that strives to help people. When I met the team at NRHA, I knew it was where I was meant to be. NRHA has a variety of remarkable programs, assisting people throughout rural Nevada. I’m proud to be part of an organization that caters to rural Nevadans, as well as its employees,” she says.
Stacey lives in Gardnerville with her husband and three children. Rural living suits her family well. Stacey loves to garden and has been involved in the development of two Eastern Sierras community garden projects. Stacey also enjoys sewing, crafting and refurbishing old furniture.
