Traci is a graduate of Binghamton University (B.A. in political science and history, 1997), and of Emory University School of Law (J.D., 2000) where she was a member of the Moot Court Society, the Order of Advocates, the Honor Court and the Honor Court of Appeals.

Traci is also an active member of the Charles Longstreet Weltner Family Law American Inn of Court, the State Bar of Georgia and the general and family law sections of the Atlanta, Cobb County [Vice President (2019-present), Secretary (2018-2019], and DeKalb County Bar Associations. In addition, she has contributed to revisions and updates to Georgia Domestic Relations - Forms and Practices, a book including guides to the practice of family law in Georgia and related forms highly regarded by lawyers throughout the state (2012-2018).  She served as a judge for the State Bar of Georgia YLD William W. Daniel National Invitational Mock Trial Tournament each year from 2004 through 2009, and was the Sponsorship Chair for The Supreme Cork fundraising event hosted by the YLD Family Law Committee of the State Bar of Georgia, as well as the Treasurer for that Committee (2007-2009).  She is also an active member of her community and has served on the Board of Directors of her homeowners' association.

One of the Best
Traci is an absolute pleasure to work with. My divorce was difficult and unique in many ways, and I cannot imagine how I would have gotten through it without her guidance and representation. She is sincere, honest, and very detail-oriented. Her care for her clients was evident with the way she handled my case. I do not have enough good things to say about her, and I would recommend her to any of my friends or loved ones who is going through this difficult time in their lives.

She is worth every penny of her fee."
