Traci has been an educator for almost 30 years with degrees in child development, literacy and curriculum & instruction. Her work is in the areas of belonging, diversity and inclusion, anti-bias curriculum and racial identity.

As a belonging advocate and mother of 5 biracial children (one child with ADHD, one diagnosed with anxiety and another who battles depression) Traci has navigated the space of parenting and applies her professional knowledge and personal experiences in her heart-centered coaching approach to support moms on their parenting journey.
