STACEY SMITH
BUSINESS OPERATIONS ANALYST

In my 10 years experience as an executive assistant, I am always proud to be a part of my CEO’s/executives teams journey. I get great satisfaction watching a driven individual realizing their dreams and passions and making them a reality and it’s great supporting them along the way.

My first executive assistant role was for my husband, the CEO of Zachary’s swimming pool and property management.He had an idea and by working together with my endless support and set of skills I brought to the table I can comfortably say I enjoyed my job and assisting is a passion.Working within a personal and working relationship was a test for my multitasking capabilities while managing our 2 sons, our home and being the backbone to help my CEO/husband to build his business was a major achievement for both him and I.
I love music and at least once a month I’m out dancing and shaking off some steam. Being the only girl on the team is nothing new to me. From sports as a kid or being part of the small portion of female relatives in my family. I’m used to the energy and what that brings.
