Mike Tracy

Co-Founder/Community Outreach Manager

Julie and Michael Tracy are the proud parents of two young adult sons, Joseph and John. While Joseph developed typically, John was diagnosed with autism at age two. Unpredictably, John’s mental health declined, and his autism diagnosis complicated treatment.
