Tracy has always put people first, both professionally and as a community volunteer. At a young age her parents instilled in her the importance of volunteering. Tracy is inspired by Margaret Mead who said,

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Much of Tracy’s community service is focused on helping those who do not have a voice or powerful lobbyists. She has volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri to help young people in our region and for Safe Connections (as board chair and committee chair) which helps those who are victims of relationship violence, sexual assault, and/or childhood sexual abuse.
