Originally from Philadelphia PA, Traci was Executive Director and Founder of Whatever is Pure a 501c3. Traci ran this organization for 5 years helping orphans and widows with educational needs, orphanage building, sustainable business projects, sewing centers and many other tangible needs in Kenya and Uganda. This work allowed her to help over 1500 children and many widows hear the gospel as well as receive love and support through financial giving of basic needs to the impoverished in those countries.
For the past 29 years Traci has lived in Charlotte NC with her husband Jim and three adult children Meghan, Ethan and Rahwa. Traci’s eyes were opened to the issues of global poverty and the orphan crisis when she and her husband adopted their daughter in 2012 from Ethiopia at the age of 12.
As a child, Traci loved helping other and desiring to make a difference in the world. She has been a bible teacher for 10 years and a disciple maker for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is thankful for all of the blessings God has afforded her to do in helping the less fortunate.
