Self-confessed schnauzer obsessed, Tracy has been a client of Nicklin Way Vet for many years with her two Miniature Schnauzers “J” and “Peppa” before joining the team in 2023.
Tracy grew up visiting the dog show circuit in Victoria while her mother showed champion Afghan Hounds. Her family have been the proud owners of many Afghans and were also the carer of a Victoria Police puppy in their puppy walkers’ program. After much research, Miniature Schnauzers were found to be the best breed to fit with Tracy and her husband’s lifestyle and they got their first Mini in 2007. It was a perfect match and they’ve been schnauzer-obsessed ever since!
Tracy started her professional career looking after the health and wellbeing of people after completing a Bachelor of Applied Science (Health Promotion) and worked local government for over 7 years, coordinating programs to promote health and community safety before changing direction. Tracy has since worked in fashion importing and wholesale, warehousing and distribution, residential construction, IT, the not-for-profit sector, and most recently primary healthcare, in middle and senior management positions. To add to and further develop her experience in business management, Tracy completed an MBA in 2016.
On her days off you’ll find Tracy being a roadie for her drummer husband, joining friends at live music events, hanging out with Peppa their Miniature Schnauzer, or working on her hobbies of gift-wrapping design and photography.
