      When I came to Lacey almost a year ago, I wanted to lose some body fat (tone up) and get my cycle back after several years of restriction and weight cycling.  A couple months before starting with Lacey I first started counting macros but it was not working and I was actually gaining weight despite consuming around 1400 calories while also not having a cycle.  Lacey was honest (as she always is!) and said we would really have to dive into regaining my cycle and getting my metabolism back on track before the fat loss can happen.

      The things is, I am in the nutrition field and I subconsciously knew these things but I NEEDED someone to tell me that and hold me accountable through the process. I had a lot of the knowledge but not a lot of the confidence to take it on myself! After a month of working with Lacey, I got my period and have gotten it every month since working with her while getting my calories up higher than ever.  I think counting macros can get a bad rap sometimes because people can think it is only used for weight loss, but using macros with guidance from Lacey allowed me to get my metabolism back on track and eat ENOUGH. 

       If it were not for Lacey, I would have stopped once I say the scale start to creep up, when I felt uncomfortable eating more, or when I saw changes in my body, but I knew I could trust Lacey in the process.  I didn’t start a cut until 7 or so months of working with Lacey and the lowest calories I was consuming were still HIGHER than when I came to Lacey.  Beyond her expertise in women’s health and hormones, Lacey

       is just a kind person and cares deeply about all of her clients.  Lacey has helped me build up my metabolism AND confidence to where I can continue my journey by self but I will always consider Lacey a friend. 😊

      I have been working with Lacey for over two years now for bikini contest prep and reverse, but I have a new found appreciation for her wealth of knowledge after 2020 hit. I found myself quarantined and having to support my 3 kids during distance learning (one of which has Autism) AND learn how to convert the American Sign Language courses that I teach at a local college to online format…AND I also had my sister and two young nieces living with us who also were stuck at home doing distance learning. Add of these stressors up and I found myself an exhausted, anxious, wreck who had zero energy, and couldn’t sleep, and had awful muscle recovery after struggling through workouts which I used to LOVE!! Lacey advised me to gets some labs done to check for a thyroid issue and she recommended we check my cortisol levels with the Dutch test. Turns out my prolonged stress levels, lack of sleep, and over training caused my cortisol awakening response to be critically low. Which would explain all of my symptoms and why I couldn’t keep my eyes open by 2pm every day and walked around constantly feeling overwhelmed.

      She quickly recommended an all natural regimen of happy light therapy, gargling, yoga, reduced workouts, prioritizing rest, and some supplements to nurture my hormones and cortisol. After several months of healing, and focusing on managing my stress, I am finally feeling my energy levels return for my day-to-day tasks and my motivation for strength training has returned. My lifts have been strong and my muscle recovery is good again which has improved my quality of sleep. Feeling like “myself” again is the biggest win I could have asked for this new year. Lacey’s attention to detail and natural approach has helped me heal and I know with her support and coaching, I will be able to unlock my greatest potential this year!!

      Before working with Lacey I tended to have an all or nothing mindset when it came to food. Not only did Lacey help me learn to track macros she helped me slowly increase my calories! I couldn’t believe how much I was eating and that I wasn’t depriving myself of my favorite things! Somehow I was looking leaner too! Lacey’s positive attitude, encouraging words and knowledge helped me grow mentally and feel successful. 

      Little did we know we would have an obstacle coming our way! After coming off birth control I was expecting to get a regular period. Unfortunately, that was not the case. After months of not getting a period Lacey’s recommended a Dutch test. After getting my results we worked together to figure out what steps to take next. Lacey helped me find a supplement regimen that would benefit my specific needs and gave me the knowledge that I needed to heal my body. Within just a few months I had a period and felt the best that I ever have. So many odd symptoms that I had just learned to live with were gone! I could think more clearly, I woke up easier and my body felt like it was functioning optimally. I’m forever grateful for both the physical and mental changes I’ve experienced because Lacey truely changed my life for the better!

      I started working with Lacey after unintentionally losing quite a bit of weight in a short period of time. I was suffering from chronic bloating and digestive distress, and was struggling to maintain my weight and gain muscle. After working with a gastroenterologist for several months who was unable to find a reason for my symptoms, I knew that I needed to find someone who would investigate the root cause of the issue and consider my overall health.
      When I joined Lacey’s team, we immediately set a game plan to test my gut health while starting to give my body the fuel that it needed to grow. After working with Lacey for the past six months, I have been able to put on a good amount of muscle mass, especially in my glutes, shoulders, back, and hamstrings. I have been amazed to find myself growing muscles that I never even knew existed before. Although my initial goal was not a reverse diet, Lacey was able to help me slowly increase my calories to where I was maintaining my weight at a much higher intake than when I started!

      Lacey is knowledgeable about SO many different areas, and was able to answer questions I had about all things fitness, nutrition, digestive and hormonal health. She never gave up on trying to address my digestive distress, and considered my own personal needs when suggesting how to adjust my diet and lifestyle to help me optimize my health. Lacey is incredibly sweet and compassionate, and it is evident that she truly cares about doing what is in the best interest of her clients. I am so grateful for what Lacey was able to do for me, not only physically, but also mentally by giving me a passion for being happy, healthy, and strong!

      Ive worked with lacey for 3 months for nutrition coaching. I was suffering with severe acid reflux, bloating, constipation and eczema. Ive seeker medical advice a few months prior to reaching out and was advised to take reflux suppressions which i knew did not treat the main cause of the reflux. I stumbled across Lacey’s page and decided to reach out. It was the perfect time as quarantine had just started and i was able to focus on my health and nutrition 100%. Along with receiving personalized macros, i was also advised on what to have and what to avoid, which helped relieve my constipation and decrease my reflux. A month in, i started developing eczema on my wrist, which i knew i didnt want to treat with topical steroids. Although it took a long time to commit to eliminating certain food groups from my diet and patience, it was all worth it seeing my eczema heal by focusing on my nutrition. As a result of focusing on my macros, i also noticed muscle gains as i have previously under eaten protein and restricted my calories. Additionally, ive found that my macros supported my training in all aspects as well as the results from my training. Overall, reaching out to lacey was very beneficial to both my health, strength and appearance. 

      I cant thank you enough Lacey!!!! Ill be back in the future😍!


      I finally found someone who cared to hear me as a person, not just a list of symptoms, who looked beyond the surface and helped me get to the root cause of why I have been feeling the way I have. It’s hard and scary to start change, but investing in this journey with Lacey was the best decision. She changed my life, health and my perspective on how to take care of my body. Her kindness, her support, and compassion is unmatched to anyone I have met. If I could give any advice to anyone who may be struggling with their thyroid, hormones, nutrition – this is your sign, Lacey will help you each step of the way towards healing. 


      Lacey was the best coach I could have picked for my first ever competition! I had researched coaches for a while before I found her, but I always went back to her. When I had first started with her, my metabolism was messed up! She knew exactly how to reverse me, so for my prep my metabolism was on fire! She coaches her clients in the healthiest way possible as she cares so much. It is so easy to trust Lacey completely as she always has her clients best interests in mind. She isn’t afraid to tell you how it is, and I love that. I have been with her since 2017 now and I couldn’t recommend anyone more than her!

      Prior to working with Lacey, I was struggling with strength and really wanting to build my muscles. With her help, I have been able to fuel my body to gain muscles in my arms, glutes, and legs! She also helped me with supplements specific to me based on lab results and I feel so much better. My brain is less foggy, I’m less lethargic, and overall, I’m just really excited that with her assistance, I have been able to take back control of my health. She is so positive and encouraging and real with her coaching. She makes me feel like I can achieve my goals without resulting in the desperate quick tricks I would try in the past. I’m so glad I found Lacey, and would recommend her to anyone who is seeking help in their health or in their physique or both.
