Jay McClatchey, Chief Operating Officer

jmcclatchey@midwayusafoundation.org 573.447.5992

Jay came to the Foundation from Applied Computational Technologies (ACT), a start-up he co-founded to develop a new dose calculation technology for radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer.  ACT sold its technology to Varian Medical Systems.  Jay started his career in the computer industry, first as a Programmer and then a Computer Systems Engineer with Hewlett-Packard Company (HP).  After HP, Jay transitioned into business operations as the VP/COO of JCM Industries, a grade hardwood lumber and pallet manufacturing company.  Jay has a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Computer Science and Business Administration, and a Master of Science degree in Management and Leadership.  Jay has been shooting and hunting ever since he was old enough to hold a gun.  In 2002, Jay co-founded a High School smallbore rifle league in Somerset County, PA and began coaching smallbore as a varsity sport in his local school district.  Jay is a Life member of the NRA, an NRA Level 1 Coach in both rifle and pistol, an NRA Instructor in rifle, pistol, and shotgun, and an NRA Range Safety Officer.  In addition to enjoying the shooting sports, Jay can often be found water skiing with his wife, Nitsa, and their daughter Maria.

Sarah is the newest addition to the team, working with our shooting teams in the Western United States.  Though she is a Nebraska native, she comes to us from Talladega, Alabama where she was the Operations Manager for the Talladega Marksmanship Park with the Civilian Marksmanship Program.  We are excited she is a product of the very programs we support.  Sarah was a scholar athlete with the University of Kentucky Rifle Team.  She and her pistol shooter husband, James, are proud parents to Rylee Claire.


Dani Farris, Marketing Manager

Dani takes care of communicating all the great work of the Foundation, as well as creating most of the marketing material.  She is the one that lectures us for using the wrong logo and is allowed to be obsessed with fonts.  A graduate of Westminster College, Dani played basketball and studied Business Communications.  Before joining the Foundation, Dani worked in the world of radio as the Creative Director for Learfield Communications, specifically with statewide news networks and the Brownfield Ag Network. Dani and her husband Charley have a son, Oliver Liam.  You can often find Dani at a Mizzou tailgate or a county fair.


Mandy Stallo, Senior Program Coordinator

Mandy wins our ‘attention to detail’ title at the office.  She knows our database inside and out, takes care of ensuring our generous donations get to the right place and is also queen of grants twice per year. Mandy is one of the veterans on staff.  She joined the Foundation after working as a Recreation Specialist with JC Parks and Recreation in her hometown of Jefferson City.  She graduated with her BS in Business Marketing from William Woods University, where she also golfed.  If she isn’t hitting the links with her husband, she is chasing around their sassy daughter, Finley Grace.  Mandy claims to not be quite as OCD as people may think, she just happens to love organization and order… ‘you’re welcome, coworkers.’  We appreciate it Mandy!


Heather Laws, Program Coordinator

hlaws@midwayusafoundation.org 573.447.5957 ext. 2178

As Mandy’s sidekick, Heather is also queen of grants twice per year and helps us keep our database in order.  Knowing Heather’s sweet personality, it is no surprise she did social work before joining us.  Though we’re based in Mizzou country, Heather is our only University of Missouri graduate. She studied Psychology and Sociology.  She likes to bake, garden, cheer on the St. Louis Cardinals and is our resident movie buff.  Along with her husband (Tim), son (Elijah), and daughter (Leola) two corgis, Yadi and Liberty, make up the Laws family.   Heather also wins our ‘rookie of the year’ award on the trap field!
