Lacey was born and raised in Arizona and has no desire to move away from the desert. She’s also an ASU alumna who earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Geography with an emphasis in GIS and a minor in Parks and Protected Services Management. While a student at ASU, Lacey worked as a Desk Assistant in University Housing, and previously held other service-centric positions requiring significant interaction with a diverse public. After graduating, she served as a Park Ranger Specialist within the Arizona state park system. Lacey then worked as a Senior GIS Technician for Cypress Creek Renewables where she used GIS to identify land for potential solar farms. Outside of work she enjoys hiking, kayaking, playing video games, and spending time with her two cats and husband. She is also interested in adding mountain biking and paddleboarding to her hobbies.

Welcome to the team, Lacey!
