Author & Journalist | Covering Mental Health, Relationships, Wellness & Joy
FEATURED WRITER FOR
ILLUMINATING THE HuMAN EXPERIENCE With Depth, DELIGHT & dazzle
Hello brave and bountiful human. Welcome to my thought haven; it's a delight to host you! I'm Lacey, and I've spent nearly a decade serving as a multi-passionate author, editor, and journalist who is committed to sparking rare and meaningful conversations that unlock hearts, energize minds, and swing open doorways of possibility.
In my life, I've moved through wonderful things and awful things–having survived a family-wide tragedy in early childhood that spawned years of heartache, disempowering relational patterns and trauma-driven decisions in young adulthood, and a near-fatal accident not long ago. Such is why I have an insatiable passion for exploring the elements of a meaningful life. It's also why I floated back to the classroom to earn my Marriage & Family Therapy master's degree from Lipscomb University (I hope to be your therapist in a year or so!) so that I can further build dialogues of beauty, connection, love, and understanding in an aching world of fractured systems.
In my more than decade-long career, I've worked with a fascinating range of top mental health experts, spiritual thought leaders, and beloved personalities including Deepak Chopra, Daymond John, Julia Cameron, Dr. Caroline Leaf, Dr. Venus Nicolino (“Dr. V”) and Gabby Bernstein. Along the way, I’ve served as editor-in-chief of an inspired living magazine and executive lifestyle editor for a beauty and fashion magazine, and have written essays, deep-dive explainers, and feature stories for top women-geared media sources including Oprah.com, Oprah Daily, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Oprah Daily, Redbook and POPSUGAR—many of which have been syndicated by Apple News, MSN, and Yahoo! You can also find me as a featured guest on a variety of Forbes and iHeartMedia top podcasts.
This also means that love notes from across the globe have landed in my DMs and emails, thanking me for serving as solace during a nasty breakup, a guide for carving out boundaries with in-laws, a spotlight for narcissists in social circles, and the courage to do everything from exile their breast implants and reclaim their health, to turn their nose up at mom guilt and reclaim their identity in more vivid ways after giving birth. It makes me tear with joy to imagine that my words might be scribbled in journals and pinned to bathroom mirrors I’ll never see.
With a deep intrigue for human beings, an allegiance to science, and a fiery passion for smacking my readers in the face with comfort and truth, the human quest for authentic expression, joy, and transformation is my playground of discovery.
This inspired me to call upon my vault of personal and professional experiences in order to create the Radical Life Renovation: A Guided Program to Heal the Past, Reclaim Your Power & Build a Future You Love, an interactive book packed with soulful stories, life-building exercises, sacred rituals and empowering science.
Since its release last year, I've begun the process of researching, interviewing and compiling stories for my debut hardback book–a dazzling exploration of the gifts and opportunities within pain and trauma, which I'll form together and release upon the satisfaction of my advanced degree.
Thanks for landing in my orbit! 💫
