Program and Grants Manager
Tracie spent the first part of her career working in the business sector for various retail establishments while attending Randolph-Macon College. She decided to pursue her love of literature and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English, minoring in Studio Art and Religious Studies. After working with Robins Foundation as an intern, she discovered a new passion for philanthropy, and was invited to join the staff in 2016 as Special Projects Coordinator. She now serves as the Program and Grants Manager – a great combination of her love of lists and information technology!
When not maintaining the digital world of grant making, she enjoys traveling to new places and making friends across the globe. Volunteering has always been important to Tracie; she works closely with Initiative of Change International, Chrysalis Institute and the Interfaith Community of Greater Richmond. In her downtime she enjoys kayaking, gardening and taking pictures for Instagram.
