For over 30 years, Staci has been through a myriad of personal family experiences leading her on seemingly predestined child oriented careers and ultimately, the co-founding of MFS. This has only strengthened her knowledge as a Parent and Provider with Special Education and Pediatric Mental Health & Rehabilitative programs, ensuring she knows the views from both perspectives.
Family needs and her careers took her on a path which included a multitude of different programs including state provided & private services. Staci knows very well, what parents and children need, want, expect & DESERVE !!! Her journey has explored many areas of Child Development simply by being a parent of 3 children with their own unique circumstances early in her family life, this gave her the courage and the passion to help others.
The birth of her youngest daughter who was a Micro-Preemie, introduced Staci to the Early Intervention Program offered in IL. This was a life changing experience to say the least. Alexandria, (1 pound, 1 ounce at birth) needed & received an array of different therapeutic interventions, from the time she finally came home (4 months weighing about 4 pounds, 12 pounds at her 1st birthday) until age 3 and then graduated to other programs.
During the 1st few months of her daughter’s miraculous life, Staci was visiting the hospital for hours every day. While there, our always accommodating CEO also took it upon herself to form Parental Liaison relationships and a group with other parents in the NICU to help comfort both English & Spanish families alike.
After this experience and being that her daughter was safely on her correct developmental path with the help of IL Early Intervention, she continued her career as an E.I. Parental Liaison / Interpreter, but now more focused on medically fragile cases….for 16 years. As a Child Care Teacher & Director, an E.I. Provider; as a Spanish Interpreter & Parental Liaison, and lastly, as a Director of an Early Intervention community Provider here in Las Vegas.
Staci has more than earned the respect of her peers, and most importantly, her families.
