Lacy Greer - Logistics Volunteer
Lacy's Background and Travel Experience All Over The World
Originally from Arizona, Lacy pursued post-secondary education as a recruit for the Navy NUC program in Charleston, South Carolina before he moved to Seattle to start a degree in chemical engineering. While in Seattle, Lacy was passionate about volunteering his time for the Puget Sound Blood Center and the Banaroya Research Institute.
He first started speaking Spanish when he enrolled in a language school in Costa Rica and also enriched himself by getting certified as a yoga instructor in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Enthralled with the wildlife and Central American culture, Lacy worked as a volunteer for four months rehabilitating the sea turtle population in Costa Rica.

Lacy wrapped up his Alaska season this year on September 24th, and quickly joined the Sierra Madre Research team at a rock climbing competition in Arkansas.

Lacy is passionate about environmental sustainability and interacting with people from different backgrounds and points of view. His passion for Latin American culture and the ability to positively change people’s quality of life led Lacy to volunteer for Sierra Madre Research. Lacy is obsessed with owls, sea horses, sea turtles, jellyfish and after residing in Seattle requires a premium cup of coffee to start his day.
