Tracy serves as the Director of Events Communications and handles all communications for BIO’s events and emerging company policy issues. She loves blogging and podcasting on all things biotech and believes in the great potential of the industry, looking for every opportunity to spread the message far and wide. Nearly everyone in her family is a golfer, and as such, she has what many people have called a “natural” swing. Sometimes she even hits the ball. Tracy just finished her ninth marathon, and has nearly mastered the skill of one-foot-in-front-of-the-other (usually, sometimes the laces get in the way). The joy of her life is her five-year-old daughter Josephine.
