Tracy is originally from Syracuse, New York, where pets were a constant in her household growing up. She was especially inspired by her grandfather, who always helped feed wild birds and stray pets. For Tracy, helping to care for pets professionally simply made sense! She’s thrilled to satisfy a lifelong dream of hers by caring for the area’s pet owners and animal companions here at Friendship Animal Hospital.
Tracy has an extensive background in areas such as administrative support, medical record-keeping, customer service, and education—she’s happy to put those skills to good use here at the clinic’s front desk. She joined the hospital family in November of 2018, and loves to meet new pet owners and their adorable companions on a daily basis. Tracy is also fond of the way her job allows her to indulge her interests in science and medicine.
Outside of veterinary care, Tracy is passionate about reading and writing, and has even won awards for her poetry, playwriting, and short stories. She also has a background in theater, and has worked as a professional actress for more than 25 years!
Tracy and her husband have three grown daughters and share their home with two black cats: Gus, whose favorite things are his brush, mashed potatoes, and a variety of catnip mice; and Petunia, a cat of many personalities who likes riding along on her parents’ shoulders while chores are done around the house.
