Don Barnes
“What I love most about Tracy is my favorite quality in leadership — leading with tremendous humility. Things are never about her; they are always about the people whom she touches, lifts, and helps create an environment for others to be successful.”

— Sheriff Don Barnes, Orange County Sheriff's Department

Tim Mead
“In 40 years with the Angels and 2 years in Cooperstown, I was privileged to be around a lot of collections of great talent and teams. But I don’t think any of them match the grouping of people, the skill set, and the character that Tracy contributes to. There’s a great quote from Jackie Robinson, one of many that he had, where he said, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on others.” And there are few people that I know and have come across that truism fits to the degree that it does to Tracy. I’ve always admired and respected her proactive approach instead of a reactive approach.”

— Tim Mead, Former Angels Vice President of Communication & Former President of the National Baseball Hall of Fame

Anabel Romero
“We hired Tracy to host a leadership summit for approximately 130 supervisors, managers, and executives. Tracy’s workshops on reconnecting with our purpose, value of collaboration and improving communication was exceptional. Tracy is dynamic, engaging, and has the ability to connect with her audience in a meaningful way. Our team of leaders left the workshop invigorated and hungry for more workshops. If you are looking for a speaker for your team, Tracy is your top choice.”

— Anabel Romero, Court Executive Officer, San Bernardino Superior Court

Lorenzo Glenn
“I sat on several oral boards over the years. I've seen candidates fail and re-interview the following year. Those candidates that have worked with Tracy were completely prepared and are now promoted. I worked with Tracy after seeing the results firsthand. Working with Tracy as my promotional interview coach has been an invaluable experience. Her insights, guidance, and tailored approach were instrumental in helping me prepare effectively and present my best self during the interview process.

Jen Contini
“I have seen Tracy excel in everything she does. She is an exceptional trial attorney. She’s a zealous advocate who is always professional, ethical, and the most prepared attorney in the courtroom. What motivates Tracy? Because if you’ve been coached by her, which I think most of us have, that’s one of her many gems and strategies, you must know what people’s motivation cards are if you’re trying to persuade them or lead them or talk to them. So, what motivates Tracy? Why is she so inspiring? And it’s her character. The only thing that motivates her is to do the right thing.”

— Jen Contini, Anaheim Assistant City Attorney
