Stacey Sao, Founder & Managing Director
Stacey Sao Stacey Sao developed the idea for BostonCentral when she moved to the Boston area in 2001 and encountered a great deal of difficulty finding useful, family-friendly information in a central place. (Hey, back then there was nothing like it!) So she compiled the research she did for her family's move - and BostonCentral was born.

Having been in high-tech marketing for many years, she launched BostonCentral to provide great family-friendly information not only to newcomers, but to local residents who are looking for great family events and activities.

Over the years, the site and its following have grown exponentially via web & word of mouth - and she continues to love what she does.

A 1991 graduate of Villanova University, and an avid sports fan, puzzler, arts junkie, & beach enthusiast; Stacey lives in the Boston area with her husband, daughter, son, and pet parrot.

A happy introvert, she enjoys exploring the city and has no problem seeing a movie, or going to a museum by herself. This former White House intern and cheesemonger can also change a tire & parallel parks like a master.

Sham SaoSham Sao is an Advisor to Boston Central and helped Stacey found the website back in 2001. He's a Boston-area technology executive with experience serving SaaS companies in roles such as GM and Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), and is the founder of Growth 11 (Eleven).
