Marine scientist, musician, and accidental activist.
Passionate about saving our democracy and our environment.
Tracey co-founded My Sea to Sky with several other Howe Sound citizens in March 2014, in response to growing concerns about the proposed Woodfibre LNG project. The organization has grown rapidly with over fifteen thousand people now standing in solidarity to save Howe Sound and say no to pipelines and tankers in this beautiful recovering ecosystem we call home. My Sea to Sky's campaigns are built upon a foundation of community engagement, with clear communication and education that aims to inspire people living around Howe Sound to get involved, and enables them to take direct action.
In addition to being a key spokesperson for the organization, Tracey's role has included: communications; outreach; volunteer coordination; event organization; fundraising; government liason; and research, synthesis, and design of key communication materials.
When she’s not volunteering as the Executive Director of My Sea to Sky, Tracey works at the nexus of science, design, and communication for her company, Visual Science, collaborating with universities and organizations around the world. Tracey's passion is to bring science to life using eye-catching visual elements, making data instantly accessible, even across cultural and language barriers.
In her spare time you can find Tracey skiing, sea kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, or kiteboarding—depending on the season. When she’s not having adventures or "saving the world" (or at least, her little corner of it) she’ll most likely be pottering in her veggie garden, playing guitar, or devouring a book in her hammock and watching the bees.
