About Stacy

stacy-brown-jacket-300Hi, I’m Stacy Leitner.  My passion and focus towards professional development and self-improvement is driven by a motivation that everyone can have a satisfying career.

My Career

I am an award winning executive assistant and college educator, who believes the role of today’s administrative professional has no limits.  Several years ago, I decided to rock the boat to test that theory and simultaneously co-founded Admin to Admin and launched A Great Day’s Work.

I am currently the senior executive assistant 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 12 years I have worked in collaboration with the CEO/City Manager to support a successful multi-million dollar business, which has become #12 in Fortune magazine’s 2011 and 2012 Great Place to Work list.

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 17 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 in an effort to assist administrative professionals, their bosses, and employers worldwide to become more aware of the critical and necessary role that administrative professionals play in today’s workplace.  My blog shares valuable resources, inspiration, insights, and information in an effort to help bring value to your career and the workplace.

Fun Extra Stuff I Love!

I am a sought after trainer, speaker, writer, and mentor, who wants nothing more than to help bring value to the world we live in.  I also currently serve on the 2016-2018 Board of Directors of the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP). Most importantly, I am dedicated to helping individuals accelerate their career success by helping others to reach their greatest potential.

Who Really is Stacy?

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!
