Tracy grew up on a sheep and beef farm in Stratford, New Zealand. After graduating from Massey University with her first degree in agriculture in 2000, she pursued a career in the Thoroughbred industry becoming a manager on a successful stud in Hamilton, New Zealand for a number of years. This job allowed her to travel and work all over the World during the offseason, returning to the stud for the breeding season and prepare yearlings for New Zealand’s national sale. In 2013 Tracy moved to Perth WA to began her veterinary studies at Murdoch University. She graduated at the end of 2017 and started at Gippsland Veterinary Hospital at the beginning of 2018.
