An activator, facilitator,
survivor, and mentor

Taking a strong stand for her own beliefs and others, Tracey is a seasoned speaker inspiring others on the Women’s Empowerment, Diversity in the Film and TV industry and being a champion for the next generation.

Tracey is passionate about social issues and inspiring youth, storytellers and Indigenous communities. She is all about empowering women, youth and Indigenous communities to pursue their dreams.

Tracey is a frequent speaker at industry events and conferences.

“It’s been really important to me to put forth a representation of us that aligns with everyone else, so people can relate and say, ‘Oh my god, that’s just like us, that happened to me, too,’ and laugh with us. It’s about building allies.”

As an Indigenous woman in the film and television industry Tracey hopes to inspire others to follow their passions,
regardless of the obstacles in their way.
