As the Social Media Specialist, Lacey strives to increase the overall impact of Alley Cat Allies in the social sphere. She creates and plans content for all of the organization’s social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Growing up in Nebraska, Lacey shared her home, at one point or another, with nine cats, four birds, three lizards, two rats, two guinea pigs, several big dogs, one tiny dog, a snake, and a hamster. She has also fostered cats and rescued countless injured birds and squirrels.

Lacey received a journalism degree from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln. An internship at NPR brought her to the Washington, D.C. area. After working in news for several years, she transitioned into managing communications for a nonprofit legal services organization.

In her free time, Lacey likes to write, do DIY projects, attend comedy shows, eat frozen pizza, and, of course, smile at dogs she passes on the street. She lives with her boyfriend and their two cats, Typo and Inigo.
