Tracey joined Forrest Personnel in 2003 and has an extensive background in nursing. At the age of 29 years, Tracey was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosai which is an inherited disease causing retinal degeneration of the eye. This has resulted in the gradual decline in her vision and Tracey is now legally blind. As she could no longer practice as a registered nurse, Tracey completed a course at TAFE in business and obtained a position at Forrest Personnel, working in administration and has now progressed to the role of Area Manager for Albany, Bridgetown, Bunbury, Busselton, Collie, Manjimup, Margaret River and Narrogin offices. With the installation of workplace modifications, Tracey is able to proficiently and effectively fulfil her role.
