MEET OUR PARK STAFF

Lora Lacey

Director

 

Bio: I was born and raised in Avon, Indiana right down the road from Washington Township Parks. I graduated from Avon High School in 2007 and attended Indiana State University in the fall. GO TREES! I graduated from Indiana State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation and Sport Management. I did my internship for the Indiana Park and Recreation Association, where I was fortunate enough to meet many influential professionals in this field. I have always had a passion for parks and recreation and improving the quality of life for the community. I believe that the greatest gift we can give to future generations is providing a safe place for families and friends to make memories.

Stephani Massa

Assistant Director

 

Bio: I grew up in a town of 900 people and love the sense of community in a small town.  My degree is in International Economics which I use quite frequently in Indiana (sarcasm intended).  My husband and I live in Avon with our 3 kids, Emily, A.J., and Owen. A flaw of mine is that I am late most of the time.  It’s always because I think I can squeeze one more task in; one more dish in the sink, one more load of laundry from washer to dryer, one more email sent, one more conversation in, one more wrestle match with my boy, one more………

 

Quote I live my life by: “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

 

My passion is: Laughter.  I seek it out.  I find it.  I cause it.  I over-do it quite frequently.

Bio: I was born overseas in Naha, Okinawa. My parent’s raised me in the east coast. Graduated High School in Indiana and went to college in St. Louis. My Bachelor’s degree is in Administrative Management with a minor in Marketing.  My spouse and I relocated to Avon in 2006 to raise our 2 children. I’ve been on the Pine Tree Elementary board. I am currently on the Washington Township Library board and an active member of the Oriole Advocates.  I’ve been a Leader of the Navigators, USA chapter 46 Westside Indy for 4 years. I like to stay involved with the community and local government.  I’ve always been very active and involved with both physical and mindful endeavors. I’ll always greet you like we’ve known each other forever because, in some ways, we probably always have.
