After working in the non-profit world for 10 years, Lucas is happy to return the world of academia, her Wisconsin roots, and the land of the Green Bay Packers. She has served as a counselor, educator, trainer and operations director for several non-profit organizations working to end violence against women.
In her spare time, Lucas enjoys reading and walking, but what makes her radiate true joy is helping to raise her nephew.
