Sharon Lacey

Motivational Humorist Sharon Lacey has had more adventures in the past ten years than most people experience in a lifetime. In addition to being a sought-after keynote speaker, Sharon is also an internationally touring headlining comedian. She performs all across the USA, has been to Iraq twice to entertain our troops, and recently returned from her fourth trip to Africa, where she performs stand up comedy for Ugandan audiences in two of their tribal languages.

All of this comes after Sharon’s earlier careers as a radio dj, television news producer, and a national award winning middle school teacher. She was a national Disney American Teacher Award honoree; TCI Oregon Teacher of the Year; and a consultant for the Disney Learning Project and the Harvard Zero Project.
