January 15, 2013 – Berkeley Pier with an amazing sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge. This photo was taken on November 6, 2012, after a great interview and shoot earlier that day at the Berkeley Marina for our documentary, Finding Jenn’s Voice.
Before she was Filmmaker, Tracy was a Social Worker. With an MSW from Berkeley, she spent her first career as a therapist, advocating for women and children in her practice and with several non-profit organizations. When she returned to graduate school to study video production, Tracy described this career shift as a way to practice social work on a macro level. Being a social worker is about who you are, not what you do.
In Finding Jenn’s Voice, a documentary that examines the murder of Jennifer Snyder and similar cases of Intimate Partner Homicide, Tracy feels like she’s come full circle. Although we’ve been shooting for the documentary since 2011, we are just now inching toward a completed treatment and it is finally coalescing into film!
