Tracy manages Client Accounts and relationships at Cape Island. A jack of all trades, you can count on Tracy to deliver sage advice and drop pearls of wisdom when you need it most. She's the kind of mom who carries a screwdriver in her handbag...just in case.
Tracy is a problem-solver, often providing a unique perspective on situations and finding creative ways of getting the job done effectively.

Tracy and her husband have taught their kids that this doesn't mean that one role is more important than the other - they understand the need for their parents to be at work.
