Tracy is the glue of the Overlap team. As Executive and Studio Assistant—she helps everything at Overlap run smoothly and keeps everyone smiling throughout their day. Her role includes supporting the Leadership team with a variety of tasks and projects, organizing meetings and event logistics, and coordinating Overlapper travel. Tracy is the unofficial office DJ, the order-er of post-it notes (critical to our work at Overlap) and the planner of office celebrations. She also keeps Overlappers and our guests well supplied with delicious food, snacks, and coffee.
Prior to joining Overlap, Tracy spent 6 years as part of the team running a high-school enrichment program based on the philosophy of human-centred design. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Recreation and Business from the University of Waterloo. At work and after work, Tracy is passionate about exploring opportunities for simple, open-ended play—think arts and crafts with boxes and masking tape—for kids and adults. She believes we could all do with more tinkering, scribbling, and writing in our lives.
