2687 Palmer St., Ste D, Missoula, MT 59808
Tracie first experienced Missoula, Montana when her husband, Ryan, played a playoff college football game against the Grizzlies and although her team was defeated, she fell in love with the area and vowed to return. Montana was easy to fall in love with due to the beautiful terrain and welcoming people. She was accustomed to a friendly way of life growing up in a small Iowa farming community and always hoped to return to an area that had that same atmosphere. Iowa afforded Tracie the opportunity to grow as a professional in a variety of industries while sharpening her business skills. She worked tirelessly to create and run her own companies, managed and trained a large staff in the financial sector, drafted and lobbied to pass laws for farmers through the Iowa General Assembly, directed large teams of engineers, contractors, and outside counsel on a national level to ensure leasehold interests were intact and financial due diligence was perfected during mergers and acquisitions for renewable energy projects ranging from $100 -$350 million, and operated as a member of the executive team while she was the COO/CFO for a statewide not for profit law firm that handled a plethora of civil legal issues for low-income Iowans. She received her Master’s in Public Administration from Drake University while simultaneously earning her Juris Doctor with a legislative emphasis from Drake Law School in Des Moines, Iowa. She is licensed to practice law in Iowa. Tracie and Ryan have four children, Halie, Lexie, Rylie, and Griffin. While their daughters are grown, their son is still in high school. Her son plans to take full advantage of all Montana has to offer as a true outdoorsman. Tracie is overjoyed to be part of the Montana Elder Law team where she can continue her mission to help others in the community while also affording her family a beautiful new area to explore.
