Tracy is from Lebanon, Tennessee, and has been an animal lover her entire life. She was taught compassion for animals from her mother who never turned down an animal that needed a family. She has had many dogs throughout her life, and horses, cats, guinea pigs, and birds.
Tracy has a rescue cat right now named Pen (originally Penelope but changed to Pen when she discovered it was a neutered male). Her poodle baby Pixie passed away after 20 years of family life and she has been waiting to find the next great dog for her. She has become a grandmother of four beautiful granddaughters in the last 18 months and is enjoying her new title of “Lolli”. She has been married to her husband Tim for 36 years who has worked as a non-profit executive in Nashville for 27 years. She has been involved in animal rescue and actively advocates for animals that are lost and need placement.
Tracy is the Administrative Director of TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, TN. She manages multiple surgical departments and has a great passion for high-quality care and service to her community. She has taught nursing, done legal consulting, and is highly active in her professional organizations.
