What makes Ascedia special? Our people! Every week, we'll introduce you to a member of our team so you can get to know us a little better.
NAME AND TITLE
Stacy Sandee – Director of Project Management
MY TYPICAL WORKDAY
Crazy (but in a good way)! I am involved in any number of meetings with our largest client at Ascedia, I also lead a team of three Production and Project Managers and get involved in some business development as well.
HOW I CHOSE MY CAREER PATH
I knew I would be a business major, but I wasn’t sure what my specialty would be. It started out in Accounting and when I realized how bored I would be, switched to development and a great new program at UWM. The combination of web development and my business acumen have proven to be very helpful in my current position.
MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT ASCEDIA
Favorite thing about working here? I worked with Mark, Dan and Olga in the past and always knew our paths would cross again, Ascedia feels like I have finally come back ‘home’! I really do enjoy the people (I am not just saying that) and the direction the company is going!
Bachelor of Business Administration, Management Information Systems (MIS) -- University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
HIGH SCHOOL MASCOT
After a year of getting my feet wet in my first ‘real job’ developing in COBOL (ugh!), I started as an application developer with a small digital agency working closely with Mark & Dan!
BEST PIECE OF CAREER/PROFESSIONAL ADVICE I'VE RECEIVED
It is just ‘the Web,’ it can change quickly and we shouldn’t sweat it!
My 91-year-old grandmother
FAVORITE MILWAUKEE HANGOUT
Any beer garden, usually Estabrook!
