It is unknown how Dan met Lacey. However, the couple tied the knot in October 2014. 

Lacey was born on July 25th and hails from Las Vegas, Nevada. During her younger years, she played soccer and gymnastics. Lacey began her professional career as a full-time makeup artist. 

According to Lacey, she engaged in hot yoga after her friend raved about the intensity of Bikram yoga. Since then, Lacey has been hooked on yoga. In fact, she revealed that after just 14 months of practice, Lacey underwent a two-month yoga teacher training regimen in Palm Desert, California. 

According to her LinkedIn profile, Lacey started teaching yoga in 2009. She is certified in hot yoga, yin and vinyasa. In terms of her preference, Lacey’s favorite style of yoga is hot yoga, specifically the Bikram series. Apart from it being her “first love,” Lacey also feels healthier after the exercise. 

A year later, Lacey would also venture into working with Peruvian plant medicines. She traveled to Peru from 2011 to 2012, participating in various ceremonies. Since 2012, Lacey has expanded her expertise in yoga by becoming an aerialist. She even underwent training for three months with a coach for Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas. After training, it wouldn't be long before Lacey served as an aerialist and acrobat with Sun Serpent Arts. 

After Lacey’s marriage to Dan in 2014, she traveled around the world to support her husband’s fighting career. Lacey revealed that if she had an idol outside of yoga, it would be her husband due to his will, determinatio, and perseverance. During Dan’s fights, Lacey could be easily spotted by the fans due to her frequent changes of hair color.
