Meet Tracey. At CRE, Tracey leads and supports a variety of consulting and training engagements across diverse organizations and focus areas. Engagements include strategic planning, diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as leadership and team development. She is particularly skilled in assessing organizational strengths and opportunities, and managing change toward desired outcomes. Underlying all of Tracey’s work is a staunch and passionate belief in the rights and potential of all individuals.

A bit about her. Tracey has 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, including in executive and senior leadership, program oversight and management, and technical assistance in the areas of workforce, community, and youth development. Before joining CRE, Tracey was Executive Director at StreetWise Partners, oversaw internship, job placement and advancement services designed to empower impoverished New York City residents at the HOPE Program, and was the first Executive Director of The Resolution Project, a nonprofit that helps undergraduate leaders from around the globe launch social ventures. This last position inspired her to create Community Entrepreneur Corps, a nonprofit that catalyzes, prepares and empowers low-income, minority, community college, and other underrepresented students to take part in the growing movement of youth-led social change. Tracey is on the board of CollegeSpring NY, and is an ambassador for The Resolution Project. She is certified in Clark Wilson Group: 360° Feedback Surveys and  trained in facilitative leadership for social change. She has a M.S. in Nonprofit Management from the New School and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Psst, learn a little more. Tracey is a native New Yorker, and has also traveled to all six inhabited continents—she is still working on Antarctica!
