My Story Leaving Higher Education

MEET DR. LACY

Dr. Lacy started her business as a doctoral student who was looking for more freedom outside of the confines of the ivory tower. She wanted a life where she could design her days on her terms while doing work that she loved. 

Dr. Lacy’s research focuses on using critical theories to explore the identity development of college women, the dynamics of power and privilege in sexual violence and response movements, and the intersections of race and gender in student activism. 

Dr. Lacy’s professional background is mostly within Higher Education areas such as residence life and housing, student conduct, campus-based women's centers, and first-year programs. She left Higher Education in 2020 and has never looked back.

Dr. Lacy currently lives in the Chicagoland area with her partner and adorable puppy, Sir.
