Jennifer Tracy was born and raised in Colorado. She married young and had 3 daughters by the time she was 24. She considers herself a lifelong learner. She spent most of her adult life working as a hair stylist running small hair salons. She studies Human Services at Metro State University of Denver. She believes the courses she has taken that she finds most relevant to her business mission include Human Services, Criminal Justice, Victimology, PTSD, and Psychology; However, she feels the most useful degree she holds is her Honorary Doctorate in “RLE” (Real Life Experience)!
Jennifer experienced abuse on many levels as a child. In spite of those hardships, she graduated a year early from high school with a 4.0 GPA. At the age of 29, she lost her husband and one of her twin daughters in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. Her two surviving daughters, McKayla and Amber, were left permanently injured. Both have graduated from high school, and her oldest daughter, McKayla, recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Criminal Justice Degree.
Within a year of this life-altering crash, Jennifer was diagnosed not only with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but also a brain malformation. Instead of being a victim of these circumstances, Jennifer focused on being a survivor and forged all of these events into something significant and positive.
In 2009, she was invited to be the keynote speaker at the annual MADD Law Enforcement Recognition Event in Denver. Since then she has positively influenced countless thousands with her speaking, and today she’s a highly sought after transformational speaker/author and advocate.
These roles allow Jennifer to work as a true force for good in the world.
