Hey Y’all. 
I’m Lacey, and I’m so happy to meet you.

I’m a recovering perfectionist, crazy dog momma, unicorn lover (or maybe I actually AM a unicorn?), personal development junkie, champagne enthusiast, travel addict, and a damn good coach and mentor.

And most importantly? I’ve got a lit up life AND business.

But let’s get real… that wasn’t always the case.

I’m sensitive.
Do you know what I mean? I feel DEEPLY. I love DEEPLY. I witness others DEEPLY. Basically? I’m seriously sensitive (in the best way). I’m an INT/FJ (my T/F are right on the line) and I love me some depth, relationships, feelings and emotions. In fact? It’s one of the reasons I’m an amazing coach. I can see you and meet you with such ease and care.

But I didn’t always know that or how to handle it. So I spent a lot of my life anxious and depressed. I felt all the things but I didn’t know what to DO with them or how to HARNESS them and make my sensitivity work for me.

I only knew how to push it down, which of course, led to some seriously intense perfectionist, type A, control freak tendencies. Ok, fine. I can hear you calling me out. They weren’t tendencies. They were FULL BLOWN craziness… I was always chasing that next goal, next achievement, and I was willing to run myself into the ground to get it.

I’m Driven.
That means, I did what any Type A would do. I went to college, graduated with honors and a BA in psychology. Went on to get a masters degree in mental health counseling and rocked a 4.0 like it was going out of style.

I worked as a therapist, and burned out pretty quickly not knowing how to handle my own sensitivity (and working with a really difficult population). Then I worked at a $45 million/year non-profit where I got 5 promotions in the span of about a year, and quickly rose to the Director position. And as if that wasn’t enough, decided it was time to go back and get my MBA (with a concentration in ethical leadership).

All while still battling crippling anxiety and intermittent depression.

Once I had the director position and the degrees, there wasn’t much else to chase. But hitting all the goals didn’t actually make me feel better. Like, at all. Everyone around me kept telling me how lucky I was to have my “dream job” at such a young age. Want to know what I thought every time I heard that?

“Is this what that’s supposed to FEEL like?”

In fact, I drove to work every morning asking myself, “Is this really all there is?” I kept wondering what was wrong with ME that I couldn’t feel fulfilled in the way everyone seemed to think I should.

So I did what any Type A would do… I devoted myself fully to my work, pushing my health, happiness, and relationships to the wayside.

I felt as if I were drowning every single day. Every time I tried to step away from my “dream job” I was overwhelmed by guilt, even spending my vacations glued to my phone and answering emails. My drive was quickly burning out. I knew there had to be more to life than a crazy commute, soul-sucking workplace politics, and the feeling of never getting it all done.

I was meant for something more, but I had no idea what it was or what it felt like.

I’m Determined.
The good thing about being a Type A is that when I set my mind to something, I am relentless. I knew I was meant for more, but the path to going after it and figuring it out… well it was a little treacherous.

After a serious ethical disagreement at my job (where I felt like I was being asked to compromise my values in a BIG way)… I decided I didn’t need any more signs from the Universe and had to just jump.

I left my job with no safety net. No plan. No clear path.

In fact, I tried to get another job (and mind you I had two masters degrees and lots of experience at this time that should have helped me), but the Universe wouldn’t have it. It knew I was meant for something bigger, and so did I. What felt like doors repeatedly slamming in my face was one of the best things that’s ever happened to me.

So I started my first business (vintage, new and used clothing resale) almost by accident (though nothing is an accident right?) and I committed myself to a year-long process of soul-searching, prayer, and meditation. I devoted myself completely to my growth and development, focusing on getting myself and my mental health in check.

I finally came out on the other side and my first business was thriving, and while I was SO grateful for that, I also knew it still wasn’t THE THING. But as my business continued to grow, my love of strategy and execution evolved, and my knowledge of personal development and mindset work deepened, my purpose in life became crystal clear.

I light the way for other high-achievers like me… the ones who know they’re meant for more, know they have the drive and determination to get it, and need someone that’s walked that path to take them by the hand so they too, can create a lit up life and business.

And as soon as I tapped into my soul mission to help other women stand in their power and claim the income and impact that was available to them? A Lit Up Life was born and the results showed up so quickly it made my head spin.

I’m Results-oriented.
To be an effective coach for others, I’ve implemented killer strategies within my own coaching business. Here are some of the achievements I’m proudest of:

  • Earned more than $20K in my second month in business
  • Crossed the $100k mark in less than 10 months
  • Created a multi-six figure business in 16 months
  • Built a growing, engaged tribe that I love and that love me
  • Created and launched multiple group programs with 40+ participants
  • Hosted a wide variety of challenges, webinars, masterclasses, etc. to serve my tribe through VALUE
  • Contributed more than 55 hours of free coaching in my first 5 months in business, keeping my focus on impact, not just income
  • Created a produce that donates ALL proceeds to The Tory Burch Foundation
  • Supported a female entrepreneur through Kiva to build and grow a business that will change the lives of those in her family and her community—a joint effort with my clients
  • Developed an innovative business model and did case studies, testing it for long-term stability within the industry. This model is designed to take on clients who pay me 20% of the revenue they generate during our work together, rather than a flat fee.
  • Had a full client roster in under 6 months and have maintained a waiting list for more than 1.5 years since
  • Sold out masterminds and 3+ retreats launching primarily to wait lists only

It’s not just about my successes, though. It’s really about the value I can bring to my clients and the results that gives THEM.

In fact, 12 of the clients that have worked with me in the last year have ALREADY gone on to have $100k per year + businesses. 

I’m Value-centered.
Since starting my business, I’ve helped my clients:

  • Leave their 9-5s once and for all

  • Hit their first 5k, 10k, 15K, and 20k months
