Tracey is Labor’s candidate for the State seat of Theodore on the Gold Coast. Tracey is a campaigner, an advocate and an Early Childhood Educator.

Tracey has lived on the Gold Coast for over 20 years and raised her two children locally.
Raising two children on her own while studying and working up to three jobs at a time to make ends meet, Tracey understands the challenges that many people are facing.
Having worked for twenty years as an Early Childhood Educator and advocate, Tracey is a Director of a local early education centre and believes all children – regardless of their background – deserve the best start in life.
What drives Tracey is ensuring that people get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work by creating good, stable jobs in her community and looking after those who are most vulnerable.
Tracey has been instrumental in advocating for pay rises for early childhood educators – some of the nation’s lowest paid workers and is running as a candidate because she wants to be the voice of local families and ensuring people are getting to and from work faster, are able to access front line services, and their children have access to a world class education.
