“I love working in this field because I get the opportunity to see daily improvements in patients. I get to see them going back to doing things they love, but couldn’t because of pain. There’s a lot of excitement when we can get a patient golfing, or knitting, or playing with their grand kids again!” Tracy lives in Hampshire and spends her days off traveling, (when she is not in school)!
