The &Co Team

{Doing What We Love!}

When Stacey envisioned starting a company, she always imagined bringing other like-minded folks into the mix….giving people a place to work and play at the same time! Guess what, it’s working and we’re having a blast.

JoAnna Mina

JoAnna has been an official member of the team since 2008, but we’ve been working together since 2001. With her years of experience in marketing and business development it was a natural transition to add her to the team once she became a stay at home mom. JoAnna has been working events since her college days as an Orientation Director at Cal State Northridge, planning and implementing an entire overnight program for incoming freshmen.

Her career has always revolved around events in her various occupations such as planning holiday parties, corporate retreats, company picnics and receptions for visiting dignitaries, to name a few. As we like to say, she was born to do events and we’re so happy to have her!

“My husband and I were blessed to be able to work with JoAnna!  From start to finish she has been thorough, very detailed oriented, and absolutely a dream!  She was an amazing wedding coordinator.”

– Ann & Vik | October 2011

“I cannot thank you enough for coordinating the PERFECT night for us! When I walked in, the venue was perfect and I just got to sit back and enjoy the night. It was such a pleasure working with you.”

– Veronica & Esteban | August 2013

“Thanks again for everything. You are a rockstar. It was a magical night!”

Natalie Puljiz

In early 2009 Natalie and Stacey & Company joined forces and from their first meeting they were a match made in heaven. With over 7 years of experience in event planning for a local non-profit, Natalie decided it was time for her to branch out and find something that enabled her to use her ever evolving creative side and that’s when she met Stacey. “Stacey & Company has given me a multitude of opportunities to be myself creatively and professionally, much more than I ever expected. Being able to work with people to create the events of their dreams has been extremely rewarding and being able to be part of a team that brings that dream to life, feels even better.”

“Natalie was an absolute joy to have around on our wedding day. Not only is she professional, organized and creative, but she is hilariously funny and light-hearted. She handled all the details from cake to rentals and helped me make decisions easily and quickly, and was absolutely incredible working with our vendors. She helped me to see that the most important part of our wedding day was the love we had for each other, and handled everything else. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to take the reins so that I could enjoy being a bride.”

– Elizabeth & Alex | June 2007

“We worked with Natalie and she was fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner. She was flexible, yet firm when she needed to be. Even though we hired her for day-of services only, Natalie was a huge help when our first caterer backed out 3-weeks prior to the wedding. She kept us grounded, focused on finding a replacement, and made us feel completely comfortable. The day of the wedding, she handled the vendors with grace and efficiency, took care of all the little details, and even pitched in with decorating. She made our special day go off without a hitch! What more could you ask for? We would highly recommend Natalie to anyone looking to have a fabulous wedding. Thank you Natalie, we couldn’t have done it without you!”

Marsha Tomassi

When Stacey & Company moved to Point Richmond we connected with Marsha and together we’re working on putting the FAB into “WestCoCoFabulous”. Marsha is a creative and organized mover and shaker in the Point Richmond community and also owns the Ultimate Inner Cook. After over 20 years in the banking and financial planning industries she wanted to try something different and started a new adventure. As a personal chef and caterer, she and her team are dedicated to helping clients learn that healthy eating should also be delicious and fun. She even wrote a book “One Bite at a Time: Nourishing Recipes for People with Cancer, Survivors, and Their Friends” (Ten Speed Press, Oct 2004) helping to educate folks on this very idea. She also teaches private and group cooking classes, is a phenomenal event planner and has been a joy to work with over the last 2 years.

We are also inspired by Marsha’s efforts to give back and have joined her in her efforts to support local organizations. In late 2012 we began partnering on a yearlong project for a local non-profit, the Ed Fund and just completed two fantastic events for them, an awards celebration for “Excellence in Education” and a fundraiser in San Francisco, “A Night Out with the Ed Fund”. We’ve also connected with many other groups after being introduced by Marsha such as the Point Richmond Farmer’s Market, Music is the Point – summer concert series, the SS Red Oak Victory Ship and the WCCUSD Academy Awards and have been able to help them with posters, marketing and event planning. We look forward to many more collaborations and are excited to have her as part of the team!

“Dear Marsha + Stacey: Thanks so much for your help this year with our events. It was a real pleasure working with both of you and I truly appreciate how you went above and beyond for us!”

Aubrey Magno

Aubrey joined our team as an intern in 2009, simply wanting to surround herself with everything wedding. Being surrounded by people is definitely one of her passions, so after graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in Sociology, she decided why not be surrounded by people on the most joyous of occasions like weddings, birthdays and anniversaries!

Creativity in Aubrey’s life goes way back to helping her mom sew, decorate Christmas cookies and making cards when she was little. Naturally as she got older she began helping friends plan parties along with spending summers scrapbooking.

Now as part of the Stacey & Company she gets to be creative all the time, assisting with design and assembly of custom invitations and event stationery, as well as being part of the team on large events. Aubrey also manages smaller events on her own and gets to be in charge of helping folks make their event one-of-a-kind. We’re so glad she’s part of the team!
