Stephanie Davi McNeely has been in and around the career technical education space for nearly twenty years, starting with the Sacramento Builders’ Exchange and the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Sacramento back in 2003. Working with local industry leaders, ACE Sacramento became one of the fastest growing affiliates in the country at that time. Ms. Davi McNeely then took on the role of Regional Director, West for the ACE Mentor Program of America, before moving with her family to New Orleans, Louisiana.
There, she oversaw fundraising and workforce partnerships for the Foundation for Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges and led development efforts at Ursuline Academy, the older Catholic school for girls in the United States. In 2019, Stephanie returned to her ACE roots in the role of Director of Development and Strategic Partnerships. There she is responsible for all of the national fundraising initiatives, as well as the growth and development of national partnerships with design and construction firms and like-minded associations.
