Stacey Voigt, Executive Director
Stacey Voigt, joined Delta County Economic Development in winter 2017. She moved to Colorado in 2001 to Copper Mountain to ski for one season. Two boys and a husband later, she is still here.
During her time in Colorado, Stacey has lived and worked in Summit County, Fairplay in Park County, Denver and Loveland. She can’t help but feel awed and privileged to be asked to be a part of Delta County, especially at such a pivotal time for the county. As an economic planner that has focused on revitalization and urban renewal, she is impressed with forward thinking and the effort that is happening here in the county.
Stacey has more than eight years of experience developing and coordinating local, state, tribal and national public and community projects and programs. She has experience working with community and economic development, public/private partnerships, renewal authorities and tax increment financing, grant writing, and business retention and expansion, as well as administering nonprofit organizations. She has a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Colorado, Denver as well as an undergraduate degree in Design Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Stacey has a career in a variety of roles and industries, mostly in small companies where everyone must roll up their sleeves and pitch in to whatever needs to be done. She is not only used to wearing many hats—it’s a bit of a running joke of “what hasn’t she done?”
Stacey grew up on a small farm in Northwest Washington State riding horses and participating in 4-H, competing in barrel racing and goat tying. She also loves to grow vegetables and has been known to convert her whole yard to gardens. She and her husband, Travis, and their two school-aged boys are a community-involved family with the boys playing baseball, Travis coaching baseball and helping the school PTO, and the entire family volunteering and enjoying community events. The family also loves to ski and snowboard and play board and card games. They have a cat named Pants, a wildcat rescue who now sleeps with the boys every night.

Nicci Robbins, Executive Assistant
Nicci Robbins joined Delta County Economic Development in March of 2018. Nicci grew up in England, youngest of three in a small semi-rural community. She was captain of her swim team in high school, rode horses, acted and sang with the theatre group in college. In 1996 she came to Colorado on a ski trip and returned in 1997 after selling her home in southern England to start a new adventure, and hasn’t looked back since. She has lived on the front-range for the majority of the last 30 years, with the last 6 years on the western slope, Grand Junction and now Delta.
In her working life, Nicci has focused on support roles, whether in a small family owned veterinary clinic, general contractor project administration, law enforcement dispatch, facilities coordinator at a manufacturing plant, or for a large non-profit organization with over 600 staff in Grand Junction. Her eye for detail and ability to think outside the box has gained her a good deal of respect from all employers. Her knack for juggling 21 management calendars for one organization earned her the nickname of “calendar whisperer”.
Nicci assimilates smoothly in to a new organization and is always eager to learn all she can to be the best Executive Assistant possible. Over the years Nicci has developed excellent software skills, interpersonal skills and an ability to identify process improvement potential. One of her favorite job duties is planning events; from training sessions, board retreats, or staff appreciation events.
Home life is just as busy, with a husband (JD, Navy Vet), two children (Zoe, 14 and Joseph 10) and five rescue dogs (Gypsy, Windsor, Coco, Lucy and Peanut). Nicci competed in 2016 in a talent show in Los Angeles, scoring in the top ten in all categories, her favorite were Commercial Print Modeling and Improv! At home, Nicci still finds time for her hobbies of crocheting, cycling, singing, amateur theatre, writing, reading, travel, volunteering, walks with the dogs, and puzzles. The family also enjoys restoring furniture, board and card games and family movies and cooking.
