Award-Winning Writer. Passionate Journalist. Diligent Editor.
Lacey Johnson is an award-winning essayist, editor and journalist. She has worked with a diverse range of authors, celebrities and spiritual thought leaders — including Deepak Chopra, Daymond John, Dr. Shefali Tsabury and Gabrielle Bernstein. Having spent two years as editor-in-chief for The Connect magazine, she single-handedly conceptualized, pitched and secured dozens of high-profile features. She founded The Wonder Report in 2018, a colorful, gutsy space of empowering explainers and newsy narratives, and her work can be read in a variety of top print and digital media sources including Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, POPSUGAR, O, The Oprah Magazine and others—many of which have been syndicated by Apple News, MSN and Yahoo! millions of times. She's also been a featured guest on a variety of Forbes' top podcasts such as Earn Your Happy and Minding the Mental Mess.
With a deep intrigue for human beings, and a fiery passion for smacking her readers in the face with life-unlocking truths, she writes and reports boldly and introspectively about topics that challenge the status quo—in the realms of fulfilling relationships, mental health, popular culture, women’s issues and the nuances of self-optimization. She is also deep in the process of authoring two books–one of which vividly celebrates and reveals her unexpected evolution through pregnancy and new motherhood and another that explores the transformation of pain and trauma into possibility and power.
"Lacey is one of the most moving, gripping, eloquent writers I’ve ever met. She is a true modern day wordsmith, knowing how to cut straight to your heart, not only in written word, but also as a speaker. I’ve had the honor of having her on my podcast, Earn Your Happy, and her episode got rave reviews and incredible downloads. Lacey is extremely diverse and creative in her ability to communicate - she's is profoundly talented in connecting with humans and extracting the stories that people are craving in her interviews and articles. I am currently begging her to get a book out in the world, simply because I can’t wait to read every single delicious word for myself. I know when Lacey speaks, she stirs something in people that we've been waiting to feel for a long time."

"I'm a big fan of Lacey Johnson's—with good reason. A top-notch professional and inspiring individual, Lacey's curiosity, enthusiasm and sense of wonder fuel an exceptional ability to discover and then unveil the crux of a story with bewitching sentences that hold her readers captive. I became acquainted with Lacey more than two years ago when I went to work for the magazine where she was editor-in-chief. I've found her to be ambitious and diligent yet wise and benevolent, giving her the unusual ability to challenge writers like me but also connect with them personally. Her energy and love of the craft of writing is delectably contagious. I want to be like Lacey when I grow up."
- Toni Lepeska, essayist and journalist
"Aside from a beautiful way with words, Lacey has a devotion to storytelling. We were introduced by my PR team for a feature article that Lacey was to write. We spent over an hour on the phone. Lacey wanted to really know me, my motivation and wrote a gorgeous piece. I've been interviewed and written about many times, but no one has taken the time nor care that Lacey did to make sure who I was touched paper."
