Hi, I'm Tracy

Certified ISR Instructor

After two decades dedicated to the golf industry, I followed my heart's call for change. In August 2005, I embarked on intensive ISR Instructor training, marking a profoundly fulfilling career shift. Teaching aquatic Self-Rescue™ skills to infants and toddlers as an ISR Instructor has proven to be the most rewarding and enriching experience of my life.

Originally from the North Shore of Chicago, I proudly consider myself an Oregonian, having relocated to the Portland area at the age of 10. A University of Oregon graduate—GO DUCKS! I currently serve as a Board of Directors member and Treasurer for the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona. Previously, I had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors for Crisis Nursery and chairing the 2010 Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona's Blue Prints and Blue Jeans Fundraiser.  As you can see by the family photos below, I am also involved with Cavalier Rescue Foundation, a true foster failure many times over.

My family includes SEVEN (yes, seven!) energetic dogs: Gidget, Moondoggie, Lovey, Velma, Flipper, Billie and Barbie.  

I look forward to working with your children, teaching them to survive in the water and enriching their lives, as well as mine, in the process.
