Tracy Managing Editor/Contributor: Tracy is the founder of LWM. She is a working teacher momma to her daughter Abigail, born Nov. 2009. Tracy was born and raised in South Florida. She studied Journalism and Mass Media at New York University, then moved across the country to the PNW. This move and giant change was spurred on after she became an eyewitness to the 9/11 attacks. She knew life could change at a moment’s notice and felt that she needed to make changes to find her true calling.
Once she fell in love with residing in Washington State, and fell in love with her now husband, she decided to go back to school to become a Secondary English Teacher. She began teaching in 2007 and has nearly years of working momma status under her belt. During this time, Tracy began thinking about creating a working mom resource blog, and decided to enlist some of her bloggy friends to help out. Because, as all of us working momma’s know, having a little help can make the journey so much easier. Thus, Liberating Working Moms: One Voice at a Time was born. She also tweets as @wa_tracy, where she is often venting out her working momma and toddler momma woes.

She fell in love with blogging because she wanted to help other new moms like her and has been blogging the 4 years since about everything from her experience with postpartum anxiety to how to feed her toddler something other than chicken nuggets every night.
