 Tracy says, “I’m doing what I love! That’s how I feel about my role as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner.  I started in the NICU as a new nurse graduate over 30 years ago, and still love what I do.  Our neonatal group is one of a kind – everyone works extremely hard to care for our most vulnerable patients and I’m proud to be a part of the team”.

In 2016, Tracy went back to school to pursue my MSN and once she graduated, joined the faculty at East Carolina University in the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner program teaching our next generation of NNPs.  Tracy is married and has 3 awesome children. When not at work or teaching, Tracy enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and exercising.
