Biography of Tracy Minnec


“My personal mission is to positively impact as many people as possible, and they will then positively impact others. 

I choose to live my life to empower those around me!”​

“Even at a young age I always knew I wanted to help people but I wasn’t sure how to do that… My life’s path was never in a straight line, more like a crooked trail through the woods at night!  But, those twists, turns and detours are what has given me tremendous credibility.  Understanding the need to “trust the journey” has inspired the initiative and pursuit of my passion to share my gifts with as many people and organizations as possible.” Tracy Minnec

Thank you for reading about my journey.  I look forward to being a part of yours!
