Lacey started playing poker as a young girl around the family card table which soon led to playing and winning hands through college. While finishing her degree in political science, she pitted her poker skills against her male frat-boys and quickly learned she could really play. While she was learning to play, she was also learning to win. In 2005, Lacey was invited to compete in an ESPN event as a model. Before the event was set to start, Lacey insisted she could play. So she did and advanced to 32 out of 360 players.
In 2008, Lacey was the Co-Host of The Real Deal! at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas while also gracing the cover of Bluff Magazine in their November 2008 issue. This was 1 of only 3 covers in Bluff circulation history to feature a woman.
Today, Lacey continues to be a force in the poker world. In 2009, she was a Borgata Poker Spokesmodel for January and September's Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City. Lacey has also hosted interviews at the 2009 WSOP for ESPN 360, wsop.com, and Bluffmagazine.com. She even hosted the official kick off party for 2009 World Series of Poker, while also being the official Hostess of the 2009 World Series of Poker Final Table Main Event. November of 2009 brought Lacey to Fox Sports new poker show, Poker2Nite, where she was their roving reporter, interviewing the biggest stars of the poker world.
In addition to all of that, for the fourth year in a row Lacey has been the media darling and tournament hostess for Canada's largest event, The British Colombia Poker Championship. Recently, in May, Lacey hosted the Full Tilt Doubles Championship, a new poker show pitting teams against each other, which is set to begin airing sometime in 2010.
Lacey did much more than just hosting and interviews in 2009. She was able to accomplish everything from high model fashion runway for St. John and Valentino, to winning 3rd place in the 2009 WPS Costa Rica Showdown. She has even starred in a hip hop video and landed large modeling billboard campaigns with gaming giants LUXOR hotel and MGM Skylofts.
