Tracy Walton

Born and raised in Lancaster, PA, Tracy first arrived in Oklahoma in 2002 determined to relocate immediately after graduation from OU. Instead Oklahoma City stole her heart and it wasn’t until 9 years (and 2 schools) later that she relinquished her OK driver’s license to be closer to family after her daughter Giuliana was born. Though she cherished the time spent with her big, crazy family, OKC had never released its hold on her. Encouraged by her supportive and adventurous partner Adam, the family relocated in early 2015 and Tracy is now happily exploring “the city” through the eyes of a mom and loves introducing Adam and Giuli to her favorite places from her young and carefree single days! Her not-so-secret superpowers are dreaming big, starting projects, being the world’s most unorganized neat freak, loving the heck out of people and dogs, and turning her daughter into a (smarter, cuter) clone of herself.
