About Tracy

Growing up in a family-owned business made me aware of the critical nature of making a sound decision, the true meaning of wearing all hats, and the importance of being part of a team environment.

I carried these skills throughout my career learning many key lessons along the way.

Some of those key lessons were:

1) The Customer Is Always Right
2) Communication Is Key
3) It’s Okay Not To Know the Answer…Research, Learn, Communicate
4) Look Everywhere For Process Improvements
5) Be A Leader In What Ever Position You May Be In
6) Involve Everyone For Department Development
7) Give Informal Feedback Routinely

After having a fulfilling career in the technology industry, I’m embarking on a new venture with technology and education professionals to change the education industry. We are advocates of STEAM which not only considers the Arts as a viable discipline but advocates for creativity to be infused into the canvas of our lives. We promote inclusivity for the lifelong learner with key transition points in one’s life as a focus of attention to learning.
