Director of Innovation
Tracy has over 20 years of experience working as staff, consultant, business owner, and corporate employee in service to the nonprofit ecosystem. They hold a Master of Public Administration degree from NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service and are a Salesforce MVP alum. Tracy began their career in nonprofit technology in the days gone by of server racks and on-premise hardware while managing technology adoption and investments for a national racial justice nonprofit. They became a cloud technologist in 2008 when their nonprofit adopted Salesforce, and they have been an administrator, consultant, and evangelist for cloud technology and data for good ever since. Along the way, they’ve worked with both small volunteer-led and large global nonprofits; founded a business; and presented on technology management and strategy to audiences ranging from C-Suite leaders to thousands at venues including Dreamforce, the NTEN NTC, and NetSquared. Tracy lives (and works!) in Livermore, CA where they helped co-found Livermore Pride. They also are a founding Board member of Amplify, have co-hosted over four dozen episodes of the Cloud TnT podcast (2015-2017), and love to ski, bike, and do pottery. They’re a spouse, step-parent, and proud owner of a “purebred” Goldendoodle named Lady California (aka “Cali”).
