Open Gymnasium Staff
Tracy has served Bunker Hill Community College since June 2013.
She is an educator, personal trainer, entrepreneur, self-confessed "neat-freak," and a student-focused administrator, among other things.
As a fitness guru, Tracy’s professional expertise extends from the training floor to management to the classroom. Her field experience has brought her into all areas of personal training and fitness—private one-on-one sessions, group fitness, personal training management, and club operations. Meanwhile, Tracy’s academic drive has seen her through both undergraduate and graduate degrees in sport management and exercise science. She began her professional career as a researcher at Old Dominion University, where she worked as a Graduate Assistant while pursuing her M.S.Ed. in the University's Department of Human Movement Sciences. After graduating Summa Cum Laude, Tracy moved back north and began capturing recognition in both gym and classroom settings.
Today, Tracy leads programming and operations in Bunker Hill’s Health and Wellness Center. She believes that working at Bunker Hill is not just an opportunity to offer creative wellness programming; she also believes in her role as a mentor and role model for the college’s diverse student population. When she is not at BHCC, you'll find her representing Cybex International as a Teaching Fellow or seeking opportunities for professional development.
Tracy’s professional credentials include a personal training certification from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM – cPT) and an instructor certification for CPR/AED/First Aid from the American Red Cross.
Joan has served the Athletic Department at BHCC since 2011.
She is dedicated to supporting the mission of the department as well as keeping the office running smoothly and efficiently. Joan is a familiar face to most people on campus as she worked in the Student Activities Office prior to her tenure in Athletics.
Joan earned her Associate’s Degree from Lasell College in Library Science and a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from Northeastern University. When she is not working at BHCC, she is participating in fellowship and mission opportunities at her church. Family and church are central in Joan’s life.
In addition to her administrative and organizational skills, Joan is a master in the kitchen and occasionally brings in homemade treats to the office. (It’s a good thing the Fitness Center is just around the corner.) She’s also quite a story teller and often has an effective home remedy for what ails you.
Joan lives north of Boston with her husband, Lou, and together they have three children, Laura, David, and Luke.
