Tracy’s passion for the web started back in 1996 when her parents got the first computer that went on the internet. After browsing through several homepages of people (you know, those free angelfire, geocities, tripod, etc sites) she decided she wanted to try making one of those, then stayed up all night creating a homepage and teaching herself web development… and she was hooked.

Being able to just create things using code is just one piece of Tracy’s web design/development passion. More importantly, she is passionate about using these technologies to connect people, help others, and, as corny as it sounds, make the world just a bit better.
