Traci Beagley is the Founder & CEO of Sunland Home Care and Medical. She is a 4th generation native to Mesa, Arizona. Her great-grandfather and grandfather, Joe and Ross Farnsworth, built the first 55+ active adult community in the East Valley in Arizona in 1958. Since then, her father, Craig Ahlstrom, Sr., has continued building several active adult communities in Mesa. Many of Traci’s memories growing up involve serving and working with seniors. She continues to follow in her family’s compassionate legacy.
Traci has lived nearly her entire life in Mesa. She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Interdisciplinary Studies Degree from Arizona State University with an emphasis on Business and Communication. In 2009, Traci opened Accent! Window Treatments and after growing it, sold it in 2014. In 2016, Traci returned to her roots, founded Sunland Home Care, and has been actively involved in all aspects of the in-home care business for seniors since then. Recently, she was named 1 of 20 Most Influential Healthcare Entrepreneurs To Watch In 2021 and The Top 100 Business Leaders.
In 2019, Traci noticed a big gap in the senior healthcare industry by talking to her clients and assessing their needs. In response to this, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Traci created Sunland Medical, a home-based medical company. Sunland Home Care and Medical can now provide a broader continuum of care and assist people at home with medical services.
Traci loves to fix problems which leads to constant learning and personal and team development. Traci is always reading books, listening to podcasts, and talking to people. Everywhere she goes, she asks employees what they like and don’t like about the company they work for. Traci has always applied this research to enhance team member and client experiences.
Traci is committed to community service and has served on various boards to help make her city and state a better place to live. She loves giving back and volunteers her time to organizations that assist with the underprivileged, seniors, military veterans and the arts.
In 2018, Traci was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Although it has been difficult to fight the disease, she feels that she can identify with seniors she works closely within a deeper, more meaningful way. Traci has been the face of the Banner MD Anderson Breast Cancer Campaign several times and has helped raise over $150,000 for breast cancer research. She enjoys reading, traveling, hiking, talking about business, and discussing current affairs. Traci and her husband, Paul, have been married 22 years and have 3 children.
