Tracie was born, raised, and has spent most of her adult life in East Texas. After graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, she took time off to focus on raising her daughter. In 2007, she married Miguel Fabbiani who at the time was an instructor at Fort Bragg, NC. In 2009, they moved back to Texas where Miguel eventually retired from the Army with 22 years of active service which included multiple combat tours in the Middle East.
Miguel began partnering with Veteran organizations with the primary focus being the Veteran. Tracie saw firsthand the challenges faced by spouses and dependents of soldiers and wanted to be part of an organization who provided support to the family members as well as the veteran. Operation True North’s vision to come along side family members was why Tracie joined the board in 2020.
