Tracy was born in Washington, DC and now resides in quiet Chesapeake Beach, Maryland which is just a short drive to our nation’s capital. Tracy started out in the group travel industry right out of high school by working at her family-owned motor coach company. Working her way up the ladder she became the operations manager and after 22 years she decided to pursue her love of Washington and American history by becoming a DC tour guide. She loves sharing her love of history and the city with groups of all ages! When she is not guiding, you will find her at home with her husband Brett & sweet Golden Retrievers, Kirby & Murphy.
