Lacey grew up in Washington County and loves being a part of conserving its natural resources. She came to Tualatin SWCD as a Resource Technician in 2006, writing conservation plans and providing technical assistance to rural landowners. Lacey developed a strong knowledge of SWCD operations over the years and began leading the organization in 2011. She graduated with a B.S. in Biology from Oregon State University, followed by a Master’s in Environmental Management from Portland State University. When she is not leading the organization, you can find her enjoying time outdoors with her two kids and dog, spending time with family, gardening, cooking, and reading.
