Traci’s backyard is Lake Michigan and spends as much of her time sailing on it as possible. She is also a year around cyclist, runner and still photographer. Her hope is to bring people together by introducing different opportunities to help everyone find their own outdoor passion. Her favorite part of the job is learning, sharing and making a difference in the community.
Traci grew up in Minnesota, received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Mass Communications from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse and has a Certification in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
Prior to joining Milwaukee PBS in 2014, she spent over twenty years working as a multimedia journalist, photographer and editor at news stations in Wisconsin and Illinois.
