Additionally, Lacey is a teaching artist specializing in educating young performers at various regional theatres as well as through her own private studio. Her teaching experiences include music directing "Pirates of Penzance Jr." at the Roxy Regional theatre, leading musical theatre workshops and intensives at Nashville Children's Theatre, as well as assisting and lead directing the Theatre School productions at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.

Most recently, Lacey completed an Artistic Internship with Nashville's Studio Tenn Theatre Company. She worked closely with artistic, producing, and administrative staff to help build and create shows that garnish both local and national press alike. Lacey was able to grow multiple fields including, but not limited to, costuming, production management, and communications. She was also chosen to assist in additional projects such as their seasonal auditions and scanning source materials to aid in the selection process of the next season's productions.

Lacey looks forward to future endeavors both behind the scenes and on stage as she relocates to the New River Valley, Virginia area.
