5 Questions For Tracy

1. Where can we find you when you're not working?

Somewhere along I-65! I'm from Chicago, so I go back at least once a month (sometimes more) to visit friends and family. I also love trying new restaurants with my husband, cooking, shopping, traveling and spoiling our Boxer.

2. If you weren't doing what you do today, what other job would you have?

Working in a bakery or flower shop. I love to bake, decorate and organize. I think either industry would be a creative outlet for me. Come to think of it... a flower shop would be a safer bet, because if I worked in a bakery I would eat everything in sight!

3. Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? Why?

Drive a car. I, unfortunately, rely on driving for everything. If Indy could get mass transit up and running, I would embrace it!

4. What would you do if you won the lottery?

I would travel, travel and travel some more. I want to see the world. I would share the wealth with my friends and family. I would definitely give to the unfortunate. I'm not sure if I would create my own foundation or give to another (maybe both!).

5. What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?

A boat, a bed and my wedding album.
