Stacy received her bachelor’s in social work from Central Missouri State University in 1996, and her master’s in social work (M.S.W.) from the University of Missouri in 1997. Since that time, she has been a social worker in mental health with families and children. In 2008, Braiuca began working at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KU Med) in what would become the Center for American Indian Community Health. She obtained her master’s in public health (M.P.H.) in 2011 while at KU Med, and began teaching as an adjunct faculty member in the M.S.W. program at the University of Missouri Kansas City. Braiuca authored a course for AT Still University in 2013, and began as an adjunct faculty in their online M.P.H. program. She has been a driving force in the movement of the M.S.W. program toward hybrid and online courses. She has worked to implement cutting-edge technology into the social work and public health fields, and also into her teaching. When not teaching, tutoring, or technology coaching, Braiuca loves watercolor, pen and ink drawing, lampwork bead making, and reading. She adores her two Chow Chow babies, and is blessed with a very supportive husband. They enjoy listening to her brother play live music in the area, attending American Indian events with friends, and an occasional camping trip.
