A student working on equipment in Camosun Innovates

Lacey at work in Camosun Innovates, the applied research and innovation centre that provides dedicated access to specialized technology, equipment and expertise to local and regional companies.

As a child, Lacey was diagnosed with Epilepsy. “It really impacted my mental health.” By high school she had lost interest in her academics and just focused on the gym, the field and the shop/tech wing of her school. “I came to Camosun not really knowing what I wanted to do.” She originally came to Camosun to play for the Chargers and enrolled in the Civil Engineering Access program, offering insights into all the engineering disciplines. “When we toured Camosun Innovates as part of our Mechanical Engineering section, I was hooked,” says Lacey. “I switched programs a week later.” She attributes her success to the support she received from her instructors and peers. She received support from Camosun’s Centre for Accessible Learning to help her with the affects of her Epilepsy. “It was a relieving support,” says Lacey.

“There are so many people at Camosun that want you to succeed.”
