Lacey Connelly

Lacey has been working on campaigns for over 15 years. Starting as an intern Tracker during the 2004 Illinois Senate primary (where her boss lost to a little known State Senator named Barack Obama), she then went on to be a Field Organizer, Direct Mail Consultant, Compliance Manager, Training Director, and eventually, Caucus Director for the West Virginia House Democrats. She left the Caucus in 2021 to start her own business as a Stress Management Coach working exclusively with folx doing political work.

Lacey has lived in big cities across the country, but her heart lies in the small towns of Appalachia. She loves working with organizers and candidates whose passion is making change on the local and state level. At her core, she believes that the purpose of government is to help people.

When she's not coaching or training up-and-coming superstars, you'll probably find Lacey teaching a yoga class via Zoom, reading with a cat or dog on her lap, or camping in the West Virginia hills.
