Manager, Boundary Waters Connect
Lacey grew up in the small town of Hutchinson in rural, south central Minnesota. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Gustavus Adolphus College, and a Master of Arts in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University. Prior to moving to Ely in 2019, she lived and worked in Saint Paul. These experiences instilled in Lacey a passion for community development, and a fondness for rural living.
Lacey is honored to serve as the Manager of Boundary Waters Connect, because she knows well what it feels like to be new. She has experienced the challenges that new residents face, and believes in the value of community development as a tool for economic growth.
