Lacey Johnson is an award-winning essayist, editor and journalist. She has worked with a diverse range of authors, celebrities and spiritual thought leaders — including Deepak Chopra, Daymond John and Gabrielle Bernstein. Having spent two years as editor-in-chief for The Connect magazine, she single-handedly conceptualized, pitched and secured dozens of high-profile features. She is Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Wonder Report, and her work can be read in a variety of top print and digital media sources including Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, O, The Oprah Magazine and others—many of which have been syndicated by Apple News, MSN and Yahoo! millions of times. She's also been a featured guest on a variety of Forbes' top podcasts.​

With a deep intrigue for human beings, she writes and reports boldly and introspectively about topics that challenge the status quo—in the realms of fulfilling relationships, mental health, popular culture, women’s issues and the nuances of self-optimization. She is also deep in the process of authoring her first book, which explores the opportunities in pain and traumas to be transformed into creativity and personal power.
