We’re in conversation with Captain Tasya Lacy, USN. She and her future husband graduated from the Naval Academy in 1994. She provides a unique and detailed perspective on how they have worked together to craft Navy careers in a dual military situation. Captain Lacy speaks about broadening your perspective on where your skills and abilities can take you, and encourages taking on challenges to enhance your outcomes. As a team, she says that communication, supporting each other’s career goals, mentorship, and making sure the family is taken care of while on deployment all factor into a successful dual career in the Navy.
Captain Lacy commanded Navy Operational Support Center Baltimore, near historic Fort McHenry, from August 2016 to July 2018. Currently, Lacy is assigned to the Office of the Chief of Navy Reserve as Legislative Director.
