Lacey grew up in Southern Missouri where she developed a love of the outdoors and the Midwest. Lacey spent nearly three years at outdoor therapeutic wilderness program as a senior field instructor where she mentored under highly respected trauma therapist in a young adult and adolescent girl’s trauma group. After her time in the woods, she transitioned into the administrative office, where she acted as a Parent Coordinator, creating lasting relationships with parents and acting as an advocate for healthy communication and teaching program values and principles. While working in wilderness she gained extensive training in teaching/coaching assertive communication and reflective listening skills. She is a Wilderness First Responder and has over 9 years in outdoor leadership experience. She transitioned out of wilderness and joined the Calo family in Virginia at Calo Young Adults doing program development and Neurofeedback. Due to her desire to be closer to family, she transitioned to the Admissions team at the Lake Ozark campus. She is thankful to be back in Missouri as she has always desired to raise her son, Harvey, around friends and family.
