Experience

Tracy began her writing career at a small daily news outlet in central Virginia, where she explored everything from the newest pizza joint in town to the rogue cow blocking traffic in the city square. She made the move to New Orleans after visiting with college friends, and her love of food was amplified in what is arguably one of the best foodie cities in the world. She worked as a research editor and writer for The New Orleans Business Journal before moving to WhereTraveler New Orleans (formerly WHERE Magazine) as a writer and associate editor. She spent a good amount of time writing about the city's amazing food culture and forged relationships with some of the top chefs in the country. As a freelancer, Tracy has published numerous articles for print publications and on websites, including AZCentral, USNews, SFGate, WikiHow, and The Charlotte Observer. In addition to writing about food, Tracy has interviewed multiple musicians and artists over the years, including singer and jazz trumpeter Kermit Ruffins, whose famed barbecue is as big a draw as his music.

Education

Tracy received a Bachelor of Arts at James Madison University, where she majored in English with a concentration in poetry.
