Apex Professional Exchange’s team of dedicated professionals – including current and former host mums and former care professionals – are here to support you every step of the way. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about hosting a care professional!

Stacey

Executive Director

Stacey isn’t afraid to have those tough conversations with clients. She brings to the team a strong business mind, while still able to be empathetic to specific situations. Having joined Apex Professional Exchange just before it underwent major legislative changes, she was the driving force behind these changes and she handled them with such grace.

Experienced in business and operations, Stacey works meticulously to ensure that the Apex Professional Exchange program is the best it can be. She brings an enormous amount of passion and expertise to her role.

When she isn’t working, Stacey enjoys the time with her two children (Tony and Aubrey) and her partner, and she is a whizz in the kitchen.

Anna

Regional Director/Area Director

In 2016 Anna relocated with her Australian husband and two sons (Luke and Max) from England to Australia. She grew up in the Black Forest in Germany until her mid-teens, where her nomadic life started when at age 15, she moved to England to attend boarding school.

Finishing school and wanting to study costume design in Italy, she took up an au-pair role looking after two wonderful children. She later returned to England to complete a degree in Journalism and English Literature, which led her to a career in Public Relations.

Anna joined Apex in July 2018 as an Area Director, and moved into the Regional Director role for Australia in December 2018 enabling her to manage the  relationships between the care professionals and host families, providing them with guidance and support throughout their time together.

Anna

Program Advisor

As a foster mum to two vivacious children with additional needs, Anna really knows what Apex Professional Exchange is about. She is the first contact potential host families speak to and she can really explain what a difference it makes having a care professional supporting the family. Her second care professional arrived in mid-April 2019 to support her, her partner Russ and her two children.

She wears many hats, lecturing at Sydney University and supporting potential host families as program advisor and guideing them through the process of signing up with Apex.

With a publishing and business background, she brings with her a bright and responsive personality, with a great eye for detail.

Faith

Matching Specialist

Faith joined Apex Professional Exchange as matching specialist for Australia at the end of March 2019. Originally from the US, where she studied Health and Human Services at the University of Buffalo, she has been living in Perth in Western Australia for the last three years.

After completing her degree, she took time out to backpack around the world and ended up meeting her fiancée in Perth. She is due to get married in August 2019!

Faith brings with her wealth of experience supporting families and facilitating at a disabilities’ company. She is grounded in celebrating people’s unique abilities alongside serving those in need. Faith’s skills will be invaluable as we expand the Australian program and extend our reach to support NDIS families.
