    Tracey is thrilled to be a Master Certified Public Participation Professional (MCP3). The certification process was a great opportunity to reflect on diverse p2 involvement over the last two decades, and the value for sustainable decision making. 

    Tracey balances p2 work at her small firm with volunteer activities related to education and the environment, and support for professional associations.  At the top of her list every day is spending much time with her family and exploring.
