Tracie started out in the plumbing industry
as a labourer helping Harry on the shovel and pipeouts on our
first few new builds, "After the business grew so fast, we
decided that we needed a manger to steer us in the right
direction" Tracie then took over running the business and Health
& Safety, which is a totally different world from her chosen
profession as a Qualified Dental Assistant.
In her spare time Tracie is usually found actively supporting her children,
Tessa and Libby, on the sidelines, in the many different sports and activities
they compete in or cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
