“I have known Tracey for over fifteen years, and as a fellow empath, I can testify that she is an authentic animal medium, speaking, feeling, and acting on their behalves. We are blessed to have her working to assist our animal companions, and she deserves our support.”

— Lindsay C Lewis, BA, RSA, author, and empath

About the Author

As a lover of all life, Tracey holds that her truest friends and teachers are the animals she seeks to help. A believer in freedom and living well, Tracey spreads this philosophy to all who share their lives with her for any length of time. “A good life is not necessarily a long life”, she states, “as freedom poses risks in all the goodness of living well. Life is about quality, not quantity. I always feel blessed, like the lucky one, when I have the opportunity to learn about a new life and enhance it by sheltering it, feeding it and loving that life to the best of my ability. That is my divine purpose. I am the lucky one to have the company of every soulful creature that crosses onto my path.”

Tracey’s belief that “everyone has a book to write” doesn’t stop at people. Her compassion for animals tells countless stories of their struggles, hardships, life journeys, rewards, disappointments and challenges. “Animals are just like us. Perhaps the only difference is their language.” Tracey has spent countless hours advocating for animal welfare and volunteering for animal charities.

The passion that Tracey holds in her heart for other species has led her onto a path of animal communication and energy healing. Having come from a number of years of working in the healing arts for people with body work, massage and healing touch, Tracey’s journey has led her to working more specifically with the animal kingdom. Through her own experiences with past life regression, shamanism and animal totem studies, Tracey continues to strive to understand animals, why they are in our lives, and the messages they bring to us on a deeper level. Her aim is to help other people realize that we can all hear the animals…if only we stop to listen. Most often, if we hear them, we can correct problematic behaviors and conditions to create more overall harmony in the home.

Having obtained a BSW degree (social work), Tracey has taken her passion to help make a difference beyond people. She holds values of compassion and respect for all life and believes that if we can tap into these core values and teach people at an early age to communicate and listen to other life forms, perhaps we can see a chance for a more peaceful world where all species can coexist on this earth peacefully together in harmony.

Tracey lives on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC, Canada with her partner in life, a host of farm animals, and her two special cats who traveled back to Canada with her all the way from Costa Rica.
