Tracy’s love of nature, especially wildlife, fueled her decision to get an ecology degree. Wanting to pursue studies related to conservation, she became an environmental scientist to help protect our beautiful planet. She spent 15 years working for environmental consulting firms specializing in contaminated sediment remediation. Yet ironically, it was a career shift into web development that led her to Nat Hab, the kind of company with a dedicated focus on conservation that she always wanted to work for!
Tracy has traveled extensively within the U.S. as well as to Southern Africa, South America, Canada, Mexico, Europe and the Caribbean. Benefiting from the value of firsthand travel, being up close and personal with nature in various parts of the world, has fed Tracy's passion to protect it. Tracy lives in Kennewick, Washington where she enjoys running, paddleboarding, hiking, swimming, and kayaking.
