Traci, knew her calling at a very young age. She was a volunteer at the age of 16, working in the Maternity Department at a local Philadelphia hospital. She was intrigued with the power that women possessed with the ability to create life. It was at that defining moment that really became the beginning of the phenomenon of Traci helping women to become stronger; physically and mentally. “I realized we had been give this gift to birth a life and that alone sets us apart from anything else in this world”, she states.
Traci attended Norfolk State University and finished out her studies at Northeastern School of Nursing. She stated, “I really thought that I wanted to fly fighter planes and jets”. “However I kept thinking that I needed to do something more practical, something that I could feel rewarded with “. “ So I followed the urge to help people by going to Nursing School”, she states. Becoming a Labor and Delivery nurse, and being able to help young teens and women and educate them about their sexual and mental health was something so dear to Traci that she wanted to expand in more ways of helping women. She wanted to do more.
In 2009, Traci Co-founded “ Next Level Personal Training”, an all Female Fitness studio in Philadelphia geared to helping women to get healthy, to get fit and in shape for their mind body and soul.
