I'm Tracy, a stepmom, bio-mom and the voice behind the Essential Stepmom podcast.

My dream job is helping other stepmoms (who, like me once upon a time, had no idea what they were signing up for) to feel useful and appreciated in family life, while helping their boyfriends and husbands learn to parent with good humor and integrity.

I'm living the dream from my home in exotic Canada with my husband, one screen-fatigued university student and our dog, Scout.

Hope you enjoy!
