At Joya since 2021
Stacia, an alumni sibling, joined the Joya team in 2021. Despite insisting her career path would not gravitate toward working with individuals with disabilities, her interests naturally lead her in that direction as she became a Community Inclusion Support Specialist at the Arc of Spokane upon graduation from Whitworth University. She excelled in that position as vast experience and understanding emerged that had been nurtured while growing up with a sibling who has Down syndrome. She was able to put to practical use many of the daily skills she developed while encouraging her sister’s growth, and she discovered an interest in supporting and advocating for all individuals with disabilities along the way. In her free time, Stacia enjoys running, fishing, cake decorating and working on her recently purchased home.
