Tracy grew up with a menagerie of pets, from dogs and cats, to birds, sugar gliders and possums. She also has over 15 years of experience in the pet industry, starting with a co-op placement at a local pet store while in high school, an experience that led to her first job working with animals. Since 2001, Tracy has worked in animal hospitals within the Ottawa region, providing reception and assistant service to clients and their pets. Her own family currently includes Harley, a four-year-old Labrador cross, her cats Sasha and Mr. Binx, and her two birds, Mystery and Buddette. Tracy loves to discover the personality within each pet she meets, and the special place they hold within their own families.
