Tracey graduated with a B.S. in Communications and a concentration in Media and Society from Christopher Newport University in 2012. During her time at Christopher Newport University, Tracey was an intern with a non-profit organization that focused on bettering the environment by obtaining signatures for petitions and training volunteers.
After graduating, Tracey moved to New York where she was an intern with ZenithOptimedia, a media planning and buying company. Once Tracey’s internship ended, she traveled to Spain to be an Au Pair and lived with a Spanish family. Tracey had the opportunity to immerse herself into a new culture and learn a new language. Tracey is always looking for opportunities to help.
In 2011, Tracey joined the Service Fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega where she worked with various non-profit organizations to aid the Tidewater Community. Peterson Randall Public Relations (PRPR) recently hired Tracey on as a public relations intern and this position has given her the opportunity to utilize her education, experience and passion for working in the non-profit community.
Tracey will be working with various local Fredericksburg area non-profit organizations to raise funds and awareness. These non-profits include Fredericksburg Dining For Smiles (FDFS), Fredericksburg Regional SPCA, Rappahannock Big Sister Big Brother and The Institute of the Performing Arts (IPA). Tracey will act as a Public Relations Coordinator and be in contact with the local media to help gain visibility for these various non-profits.
