Tracey believes you’ll be the same person five years from now except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read. She is the author of eight books which teach character and proactive life skills to learners of all ages. She released Beyond Tremendous: Raising the Bar on Life to help others move beyond the ordinary to generate their best identity. Her latest book, A Message to Millennials, was released in 2017 and encourages the next generation of leaders by teaching the importance of followership. Her latest book, Spark: Five Steps to Igniting the Greatness Within, is due for release in late fall 2018.
She has also published five children’s books with her rescue dogs and is an active teacher in many of Central PAs schools and communities. The latest best smeller from her Pups of Personality is called Pawsitive Purrsonlity Plus. She donates her time and talents traveling to other countries to teach emerging leaders entrepreneurship and character skills. She also conducts reading clubs in three State Correctional Institutes where men read transformative material and find renewed value in the life.
Tracey’s company has donated over $1.7M to local homeless shelters, recovery outreach and mission groups, disaster recovery organizations, and scholarships to local colleges in the past eight years. She is a trustee of Lancaster Bible College, and a board member of the Kosovo Leadership Academy. Tracey enjoys the outdoors, biking, traveling, spending time with her pack of rescue pets, and giving others the tools to live a tremendous life.
