Traci was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She went to school at Huntertown, Arcola, back to Huntertown and then Carroll. She lived for a short period of time in Edmonds, Washington, where she began her legal career in the early 90s. When she returned to Fort Wayne in 1996, she was hired by Beckman Lawson to join the estate planning and estate administration team, which was a new type of legal work for her. Traci has been blessed to continue her journey with Beckman Lawson in that field ever since. She enjoys the variety of work and the people she works with, both inside and outside the firm. When she’s not working, she’s involved with her Christian congregation throughout the week and spending time with her family and friends. Someday she would like to travel to England to visit all the hot spots related to the royal family! She loves animals but currently does not have any pets of her own. Perhaps when she retires, she will have the time and the means to volunteer to work with animals and to travel.
