Tracy shared:

My favorite memory of working at Pathway was on our 40th Anniversary. I stood on the stage honoring the first foster kiddo I had ever worked with at Pathway when she was only 8 years old. I was so proud to have been a part of her growing up and watching her continue into her adult life with her children, marriage, and nursing degree. A great night and many happy tears filled the room. I look forward to watching her speak again this year as she has come full circle as a Pathway Foster Parent. (Stay tuned for more on Tabitha’s journey in the coming months on the blog!)

I also had the great opportunity to attend Cedar point with 16 of our staff and foster children and I cannot express how awesome the day was. Interacting with the kids and sharing these experiences with them really is empowering and reminds me why I became a social worker. So often we hear about the crisis that our children endure but it sure is nice to experience firsthand the joy and excitement they have just to do normal stuff like everyone else. Making good memories. I am so glad I was able to be a part of this day as it restores my passion!

Fun Facts about Tracy:

I am an Elvis Fan, I became a fan after he passed away. I do remember that day, and I was always intrigued by his story as much as loving his voice.
