As the daughter of a former college football player and student during the Florida State Seminoles’ most glorious football years, Tracie was sure she would end up working for the National Football League. But an internship with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taught her she would have a better time as a fan than an employee so she moved into corporate events for marquee brands including Tiffany & Co. and Outback Steakhouse.
Twelve years later, she now focuses exclusively on producing fun, memorable weddings and social events across the US and in the Caribbean.
Tracie is a Certified Special Events Professional and was named one of the “25 Young Special Events Pros to Watch” for 2016 by Special Events Magazine.
She is the nine-time chair of the Outback Bowl Gridiron Gala, one of the most highly regarded business/social events in the Tampa Bay area. She is also a member of The Junior League of Tampa, Leadership Tampa Alumni, the board of directors of the Florida State University Alumni Association, Outback Bowl and The Miss Tampa Scholarship Pageant.
Tracie and her better half, Brian Burns, live in the Tampa Bay area with their two “career changed” guide dogs Barry and Stella.
She is still a huge fan of the NFL and rates her status as back-to-back champion of her annual football pool as one of her proudest achievements.
