She retired from the Delaware State Police in 2008, where she spent her entire career on patrol, gaining the knowledge, experience and wisdom that would lead her into an effective career as a problem solver throughout her community and receiving the Delaware State Police Excellence Performance Award presented by Delaware’s Governor Ruth Ann Minner in 2007.
After retirement Lacey began writing books such as Delaware Horse Racing/Arcadia Publishing and Messages from a Mother/Authorhouse Publishing. Her latest book The Life of Lacey Lynn – My Beating Heart, Volume 1 (Vol.1) published by Xlibris is the first of a series of children’s books dedicated to her daughter Lacey Lynn who was born with a threatening heart problem that eventually had to be corrected through open heart surgery performed by Dr. Spray at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
