Lacey is a passionate and driven member in the doula industry. Her path to the world of birth began when she was a high school teacher in Philadelphia. Her nonjudgmental support afforded her students a safe haven from their own network of peers and family members who weren’t ready to provide the same environment. Lacey’s natural affinity for guiding and comforting families continues to flourish in her career as a professionally certified doula and serves as a basis for and reminder of the importance of support from an unbiased person during pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.
She completed her first doula training in 2012 and has since served hundreds of families both as a Certified Labor Doula and Postpartum and Infant Care Doula. She moved on to join ProDoula in 2014 where she found that her personal philosophies on passion, success, and sustainability in the profession closely aligned with the organization’s own teachings.
Riverside Regional Medical Center invited Lacey to be a keynote speaker at their “Birth Really Matters” Conference in 2014 and also worked closely with the administration of other hospitals over the years. This helped forge positive relationships between her agency and the local medical system’s providers. She continues to nurture those relationships to the benefit of her clients.
Lacey proudly owns Hampton Roads Doulas in Virginia and Doulas of Los Angeles in California. She lives in quiet Rescue, Virginia with her husband, Mike, and their dog, Rita, and two-spirited Lionhead rabbits.
