A Chicago native transplanted to Seattle, Washington, Tracey Yeager Blackburn has found herself in many roles. Parent, caregiver, patient advocate, cancer researcher, storyteller, and corporate professional. Adding widow to her list was not planned, but has helped her create a new path that validates the grieving process while carving out a new niche of self-realization.
She has masterfully taken her experiences as a successful corporate marketing professional turned caregiver and patient advocate into an opportunity to share that life is not always what you plan. The impetus for new projects to inspire others including creating sandshifting.com — a blog and podcast designed to share stories of inspiration, reinvention, and hope.
Tracey is grateful for her family, amazing friends and two dogs that keep her moving forward — even as she enters into life after fifty.
