Meet Our Trainers
Lacey has officially worked on campaigns since starting as an intern during the 2004 IL Senate primary, where her boss lost to a little known State Senator named Barack Obama. Since then, she has been an Organizer, Compliance Manager, Campaign Manager, Training Director, and Caucus Director for the WV House Democratic Legislative Committee. She left the Caucus in 2021 to start working with Marshall Ganz at Harvard's Center for Public Leadership, where she now leads teaching teams in Public Narrative and Organizing.
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, especially in ""red"" states that are under-resourced and underestimated.
When she's not teaching or training up-and-coming superstars, you might find Lacey taking a yoga class, reading with a cat or dog on her lap, listening to K-pop, or camping with friends.
