Dawn Welch, Director IT PMO


Stacee is a self-starter who can manage a number of high priority tasks concurrently. She supported our year-long IT project from launch thru implementation supporting nearly 50 team members and 400 system users. She did whatever was needed from managing facility requests, SharePoint sites for team and end users, logistics for training at multiple sites, scheduling meetings, event planning and keeping team spirits high by coordinating everything from catering to team swag. I appreciated having Stacee on the team because I knew if I asked her to do something, it would get done!

Barbara Sootkoos - Advisory Director specializing in Capital Projects and Infrastructure


Stacee was responsible for coordinating project administration activities for a very large project with over 30 client team members and contractors. An area in which she added great value was in negotiating with vendors for office supplies, catering, promotional items, software licenses, etc. She took it upon herself (no one asked her to do so) to actively look for discounts. This included negotiating with vendors directly, to identify discounts that could be had based on volume, poor quality of items delivered, or even online coupons. She achieved real cost savings through her initiatives in this area.

Ernest Pund - Communications Specialist


I have worked with Stacee on a large ERP implementation for Sempra Infrastructure, a company of Sempra Energy. Stacee brought an impressive collection of office skills to the table, including expertise in Excel, SharePoint and other project oriented software. She clearly was devoted to the company and loved her work. She was organized and efficient. She took pride in her work. I recommend Stacee Frane.

Mark Burns - Engineer


Myself and Sempra Infrastructure, LLC stand behind Stacee's candidacy. We have nothing but great things to say about her work ethic and professionalism.
