Traci has been performing in one way or another since she was very young. Her family nickname was Sarah Bernhardt and how she did live up to it.
Singing came naturally as well as to her sisters. Traci and her sister Kellie cut a country single (written by Kellie) and spent several years performing with "Kellie and Company."
Traci also has a passion for acting and has been blessed to play many wonderful roles both in musicals, comedies and dramas. This is where she had the great fortune to meet Michael Cohen and Liz Sumner they performed in many of the same venues, but not together, until 2005 when she finally joined Fuzzy Logic. Since then she has performed in two of Michael's musicals, Neon Coconut and Moon Fever. Traci is slated to direct Cohen's newest, Transference. She is also co-founder and board member of Small Pond Productions.
The standing joke within the group is Traci stating "I LOVE THIS SONG" or "THIS IS MY FAVORITE" with all of Michael's songs but it is so true. "Singing with Liz and Elizabeth and the guys gives me the most wonderful joy in performing which after all is what it all about."
Traci's next adventure is coming up in Feb 2008 performing the title role in Annie Get Your Gun-- a life long dream.
When not performing (which is not often) Traci enjoys her two wonderful children Richard and Angela, the best son-in-law ever, Bob, and the MOST perfect grandaughter in the world Maya Isabel. And last, but surely not least, Richard-- her favorite leading man, biggest fan, and husband of 33 years.
In all Traci will tell you she has a very blessed life with a wonderful family and friends who support and encourage her to go out and live all of her dreams. "It doesn't get any better than that!!"
