Tracy has a diverse educational and professional background with skills that have translated successfully into the real estate industry. She obtained her AA in graphic and fine arts at Santa Fe College, then completed her Bachelor’s and post-graduate work at UF focusing on Urban/Environmental Planning and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping and database applications. After moving to Los Angeles to work building a GIS system for a groundwater management agency, she earned a Web Design Certificate from California State Polytechnic University. Years later, she left the GIS field to dedicate herself to raising her family and had the opportunity to study Photography full time. She received a Professional Photography Certificate after 2 ½ years of study and spent several years working as a professional photographer.
Having moved from Florida to California and back, Tracy is familiar with what a cross-country move entails for a family, and can offer help and advice for clients in this situation. She has lived all over the area as a student, a professional and a parent and can use her experiences to match her customer’s individual lifestyle requirements with the advantages of various neighborhoods. Throughout her life, Tracy has spent a lot of time in the coastal communities of North Florida. The St. Augustine, Crescent Beach and Ponte Vedra areas are like a second home to her and she knows Cedar Key and the *Nature Coast very well. She is familiar with the advantages of these markets for investment opportunities and can be a resourceful guide for clients looking for vacation homes or rental properties.
After living for 16 years on the west coast, the return to her roots here in Gainesville has highlighted the unique qualities of this vibrant community. She values the wide variety of outdoor recreation opportunities this region affords as well as urban culture and the arts. Tracy is a mother to two kids with whom she shares her interests in photography, boating, health, fitness, gardening and of course the beach! They are a family of animal lovers who have been involved with dog rescue and local spay/neuter clinics for feral cats. In addition, Tracy loves interior design and home renovation, having transformed her mid-century California home from top to bottom to turn it into a successful property on the real estate market.
