Tracey is a firm believer in the power of investigations to help ensure fairness in the workplace.
Tracey joins OIG with close to three decades of employment law experience. She previously worked as a law firm partner at both Severson & Werson and Jackson Lewis, as well as in-house counsel at Uber, AT&T, and in the children’s summer camp field. In these roles, she advised employers on a broad spectrum of compliance issues and consulted on high-stakes employment investigations.
Tracey frequently speaks about and trains others on employment law issues, including prevention of harassment, discrimination and retaliation; appropriate handling of reasonable accommodation of disabilities; managing workplace conflict; and catalyzing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
Tracey received her mediator certification from the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law and served as a volunteer mediator for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). She graduated from the Association of Workplace Investigators’ (AWI’s) Training Institute for Workplace Investigators in 2016.
In her spare time, Tracey enjoys hiking, especially in national parks. She also likes to travel and learn about different cultures, take photographs, and spend time with her family and friends.
