Let’s start by getting to know you a little better. Tell us about yourself.
My name is Lacy Bailey. I was born and raised in Burleson, Texas as an only child. Unless you call your pets siblings! Although my husband and I actually went to daycare together, we officially met in high school over a bag of Cheetos.
That said, I married my high school sweetheart, Corey. We both attended the University of Texas at Arlington. Answers to common questions I get – no, I did not complete his homework, and we only took Information Systems together in Business school. I loved school so much I went on to get my MBA at UTA as well.
My husband and I live in Aledo, Texas where I like to create many house projects and updates. I am kind of obsessed with home fashion. I am part of the neighborhood’s social committee, where I organize Wine Night, Guy’s Night and events for the Empty Nesters. Corey makes fun of me until it’s Guy’s Night.
We have a yorkie fur baby named Julie, who is also an only child. We might have accidentally used our first child’s potential name on our dog. Both of us enjoy experiencing local eateries and entertainment. One of our favorite places is Magdalena’s. We attend Supper Club every month and highly recommend it to everyone. I am a big advocate of always taking time to know yourself, so everything around you will flourish. I have recently started learning about enneagrams – where are my sixes at?!
Beyond marketing, I gained professional experience in project management, public relations, operations and sales. All of which helped build my foundation for my ultimate goal – helping clients turn their vision and initiatives for their brand into a reality.
What’s something you love to do?
Experiencing local restaurants, drinking wine (preferably red, but trying to enjoy white wine), organizing ANYTHING, interior design and watching Below Deck.
What’s your favorite place?
My home…or any beach.
What do you love about the job?
Being able to take a client’s words and make it into a clear vision.
What is the last thing you binge-watched?
My version of binge watching is watching Gone Girl when my husband goes out of town. He thinks it’s creepy… I tell him I suck at watching shows. Ok, maybe I binge-watch Below Deck.
What’s your favorite book?
I don’t think I have a favorite. Anything that inspires self-growth.
If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?
Friends with a side of Big Bang Theory because I would be a clone of Monica and a wing of Sheldon.
Are you a listener or a talker?
Listener…until I have wine.
If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If there weren’t any more computers, what would be your new occupation?
What’s the scariest thing you’ve done for fun?
Kayaking…what we didn’t know was that it was actually like couples therapy! Ha!
What’s your favorite children’s story?
Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
If you had an extra hour of free time every day, what would you spend it doing?
Learning about myself – signs, enneagram, etc.
Any words of advice?
Take time to know yourself.

I chose Schaefer because of their emphasis on how I would fit with the company culture. Schaefer was able to see my experience quickly, and their focus on how we would collaborate as a team confirmed my findings for how much they cared about their team and myself.
