While in college at North Carolina State University in the animal science program, Tracy got a part-time job working for Dr. John Strasser at Kildaire Animal Medical Center in Cary. She took on many roles including receptionist, animal care assistant and technician, not to mention the hospital’s “go-to-girl.” She was thrilled when, after graduation in 1988, Dr. Strasser offered her the practice management position which she held for 23 years.
During these years Tracy helped Dr. Strasser and his partners open three other veterinary hospitals in the Triangle area. She has attended many veterinary management seminars over the years and loves learning new management techniques and working with her team to deliver exceptional veterinary experience to all of our clients. She is currently a member of Veterinary Growth Partners which is a national veterinary consulting group that assists veterinary owners, managers, and staff with day to day organization, team motivation, and client communication.
Tracy was honored to accept the practice manager position at Dr. Strasser’s largest undertaking yet, Carolina Ranch Animal Hospital & Resort.
When not at work, Tracy enjoys spending time with her husband, George, two children, Lindsay and Nathan, and her ever-energetic Jack Russell/Italian Greyhound, Shiro. She also has one cat, Frankie, who helps run the household as only a cat can! She also enjoys walking on the beach or in the mountains and reading on her porch. Tracy is also a proud cancer survivor.
