Lacey has been co-hosting Driving Television for six years now and she loves every minute of it.
She was brought on board as an “average consumer” providing feedback opinions that the typical driver would want to know.
Most car purchases today are made by, or heavily influenced by women - what man would buy a new car without some input from his wife? Lacey’s reviews and opinions about vehicles continue to be valuable to both sexes.
Spending hours in the garage with her dad while he rebuilt his 1948 Ford, attending gatherings at the Alberta Ford V8 Flathead Club and taking road trips every summer are a few of the things that got Lacey hooked on cars.
As a teenager, instead of the usual "boy band" posters on her wall she had a purple Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari GTO, Porsche 911 Carerra and of course, Herbie the Love Bug!
Her first vehicle was a 1983 Pontiac J2000 and she spent many hours at the garage watching it undergo repairs and getting tune-ups. As a young woman, she found it empowering to know not only how to pump her own gas, but also to change the oil and a flat tire if needed.
Fast-forward to today, and Lacey is still amazed at how many women don’t know how to care for their cars. More times than not, women spend more time looking for the perfect pair of shoes than researching their car purchases. Lacey thoroughly enjoys aiding these women with the needed information to make an educated purchase. In doing so it reveals the most gratifying part of her co-hosting Driving Television, knowing she has helped women become more aware of what to look for when buying a vehicle.
Lacey continues to expand her knowledge by driving a different car every week (sometimes two), and getting to work with someone as experienced as Zack Spencer.
This industry has seen huge changes over the years and she likes that she can provide unbiased, honest and up to date feedback to her fans and viewers.
Engaged, and planning a wedding for 2013, her fiancé is her favorite person to take road trips with. When Lacey is not behind the wheel of a car, she loves to stay fit, read books and take walks on the beach.
