Tracey McLaughlin has spent her entire working life in administrative support roles. She prefers to remain behind the scenes, a name without a face. Her career has taken her from New Jersey to North Carolina, Minnesota, and Florida; she’s worked for employers ranging from a national construction company to a small, local museum. She’s tried her hand at sales (she’s awful, her own words), and went back to admin.

No matter where she is and who she’s working for, her role is to make everyone else’s job easier, within reason. She loves learning and has a very useful bachelor’s degree in English and a completely unused, but enjoyable, Master’s degree in Environmental Policy.

When she’s not working, she spends time reading, watching movies and some truly cheesy television, and hanging out with her husband, along with Albert (dog) and Dorian (cat).
