Tracy joined McGuireWoods Consulting in 1998. She successfully represents private sector clients in the areas of transportation planning, funding and policy; public-private partnership and innovative procurement; education policy; technology policy; and land use and economic development before state and local governments.

She is an integral part of the McGuireWoods Consulting team that has established industry coalitions that worked alongside members of the Virginia General Assembly and the Executive Branch to create the current legal structure for public-private partnerships and innovative financing in the Commonwealth of Virginia. She has worked on a number of Public-Private Transportation Act and Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act projects and proposals throughout Virginia, and continues to advise clients on proposal preparation and project identification. Her clients have successfully competed to provide parking decks; public education facilities; higher education facilities; regional jails; public safety centers; an agreement to re-engineer enterprise IT applications for state government; and several transportation projects throughout the Commonwealth. Tracy also works with clients and stakeholders to explore strategies for public and private investment that supports electrification of the transportation sector.

In addition, Tracy works with private equity investors and portfolio companies to help them understand the implications of state-level economic development policy decisions and market trends for their investment and business decisions.

Prior to joining McGuireWoods Consulting, Tracy served at the Greater Washington Board of Trade where she directed the Board's lobbying efforts at the Virginia General Assembly. Over her 12-year tenure at the Board of Trade, she managed policy development and implementation strategies on transportation, tax, technology, land use, workforce development and economic development matters.
