About the Speaker

Through her personal example of courage and determination, Tracy challenges misconceptions about disability and inspires achievement.

She recently campaigned for a spot in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics as an aspiring Paralympian in sailing.

Tracy brings 25 years of experience as a speaker. She was involved with the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Parapan Games as the Manager of Parapan Planning and Integration, ensuring accessibility at 50+ large city venues. She received accolades from the International Paralympic Committee for Toronto being the ‘best prepared city ever.’ Tracy  has numerous degrees, including a Master's in Business Administration from the Rotman School of Business. She is currently the Performance Consultant with Smart Move Training.
