Lucy, a licensed Nevada lawyer, is a former Nevada Assemblywoman. She and three of her Latina colleagues became the first Latinas to be elected to the state legislature in the state's history in 2010. She continued breaking barriers when she ran state-wide for Lt. Governor and then for Congress. Lucy changed course in 2016 when she began a successful career in digital media. She launched the public affairs department at Latine digital publisher mitú, then launched Luz Media when she realized that Latinas, except for some stereotypes here and there, were almost entirely absent from mainstream media and decided to do something about it.
