My name is Traci. I lead women's camping trips and adventure getaways as a registered Maine Recreational Guide, own an Airbnb yurt business, and manage several rental properties. I have taught and coached on the collegiate level. I even survived a stint of teaching driver's ed. My résumé is vast and varied, but that doesn't define me. I really just have a passion for loving and laughing with people and meeting challenges. I cherish my husband, Chuck, our adult children and my personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
