Lucy grew up in Mill Valley California, a fairly small town on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. Staying close to her Bay Area home she attended the University of California Berkeley where she majored in American Studies with an Urban Geography focus. There she pursued her interest in storytelling by volunteering for the campus radio station's news and public affairs programs. While studying abroad in South Africa she fully realized the power that radio could have in connecting people and decided that a career in radio journalism would be her goal for the future. Her current work as a VISTA at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum is nurturing her appreciation for storytelling as she is surrounded by artifacts that reflect a diverse group of voices and tell so many peoples' stories which, without the space of the museum to document them, may otherwise be forgotten.
