About Stacy

Hi, I’m Stacy Leitner, and I believe each day offers us the opportunity to work on ourselves, to dream, and to work towards that dream. I hope you are living your dream!

My Career

I am an award winning executive assistant and college educator, who believes ‘anything is possible!’  After choosing to work dual careers for nearly two decades, I realized that my passion and focus towards professional development and self-improvement was driven by a motivation that everyone can have a satisfying career.

I am currently the senior executive assistant and city clerk at the City of Rancho Cordova in California and joined the City as employee #13 after their 2003 incorporation.  What an awesome opportunity it has been to help build a new city from the very beginning!  For over 14 years I have worked in collaboration with the CEO/City Manager to support a successful multi-million dollar business, which was recognized as #12 in Fortune magazine’s 2011 and 2012 Great Place to Work.

As a faculty member for BYU-Idaho, I am committed to developing and increasing the skills of today’s future and current workforce.  Over the years, I have dedicated more than 18 years to teaching evening, weekend, and online business, computer applications, and career development courses at four different colleges.  I have worked with thousands of students and many professionals who want to grow their careers.

My career journey has been deliberate, fulfilling, rewarding, and a ton of FUN!

My Education and Training

Since earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Utah State University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Boise State University, I have continued to support my passion for life-long learning.  I have earned the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certifications in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access.  I am certified through IAAP as a Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) and earned the additional Organizational Management (OM) designation.  I am an avid reader of non-fiction and invest in my professional development through conference attendance, listening to Webinars, and much more.

My Blog

A Great Day’s Work was launched to share valuable resources, inspiration, insights, and information in an effort to help bring value to your career and the workplace.

Fun EXTRA Stuff I Love!

In 2014, I co-founded Admin to Admin.  Admin to Admin delivers customized onsite training programs for administrative professionals, provides consulting services specializing in the area of administrative support, and hosts an annual educational retreat.

On A More Personal Note

I am my parent’s daughter, a pretty cool oldest sister, a reliable friend, and an advocate for the administrative professional career.  I really care about wanting to help administrative professionals, managers/executives, and businesses be successful.  I’m a night owl who loves to tap on the keys to create new blog posts and share valuable information through social media technologies.  I enjoy playing the piano, and I am an adventurer who loves to travel the globe.  Join me on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter so we can stay in touch!
