She received a scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to play Division I lacrosse. The North Carolina Women’s lacrosse team won the Atlantic Coast Conference and won the National Championship in 2016. Kacey now has two rings for her collegiate sports accomplishments.
During the summer break, Kacey would return to San Diego where she would intern for KUSI SPORTS and Paul Rudy. It was during this time where she learned the “ ins and outs” of covering local sports.

In late 2019, Kacey made her debut on Good Morning San Diego as a live field reporter on the weekend broadcasts. She continues to report stories on Good Morning San Diego five days a week.
