Meet Dr. Traci

At the head of Dr. Traci’s House is a woman who strives to make a difference every day, witnessed by her outpouring of advocacy work, especially concerning diabetes. Dr. Traci’s dedication to improving diabetes awareness is personal and hits close to home.

She earned her undergraduate degree in chemistry from Georgetown University, her Doctorate in Medicine from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and her Master of Business Administration from Howard University.

She continues her local philanthropic efforts through her multi-year status as an American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure champion and serves as a board member of the Tampa Bay Community Leadership Board for the American Diabetes Association.

Dr. Traci has worn many hats the last 10 years after making Tampa her home.

Dr. Traci was raised by a single mom and her childhood reflects a similar socioeconomic background to many children who live in East Tampa.
