As a communications director, Tracey creates content including blogs, white papers, infographics, webinars, newsletters, and emails—lots and lots of emails. After working remote for 7 years, Tracey discovered that she is an extrovert’s extrovert and is really happy to be back working in an office surrounded by people. An avid reader, Tracey is making her way through James Mustich’s 1000 Books to Read Before You Die. Currently, she is about 90 percent through the A’s, so she has a long way to go, but is enjoying rereading old favorites like Richard Adams’s Watership Down as well as discovering new gems like the Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov.
