Tracy is the Database Superhero for ChannelAdvisor. She has spent over 20 years in IT and has used SQL Server since 1999 and is now certified as an MCSE Data Management and Analytics. Tracy covers all aspects of administration and deals heavily with performance tuning and high availability and disaster recovery. Tracy is a co-organizer of a Special Interest Group (SIG) dedicated to advanced DBA topics in our local user group TriPass. Before she worked full-time as a DBA she was formally a developer and network administrator. She also tinkered with databases in middle/high school to keep her sports card collection organized.
Tracy has volunteered through the NC Guardian ad Litem program since 2003 advocating for abused and neglected foster children in court. This is her passion outside of SQL Server and favorite job.More information about this program in North Carolina can be found at http://volunteerforgal.org or the national organization CASA at http://www.casaforchildren.org.
