What is your full name? Tracy Anne Darling-DeMarcus
What is your preferred name? Just Tracy is fine!
What is your job title at the WCA? Community Engagement Specialist
What do you do in your job at the WCA? In a nutshell, I will be working with the community to develop and implement outreach and prevention strategies that fulfill the mission and vision of the WCA.
How long have you been with the WCA? Almost three whole days
Where did you work prior to joining the WCA team? Prior to working with the WCA, I worked for a small domestic violence/sexual assault agency in Wyoming called Crook County Family Violence & Sexual Assault Services.
What do you find most rewarding about your work at the WCA? I haven’t worked at the WCA long, but I think there are many rewarding aspects to working in the world of gender-based violence. I was an advocate at my last job (although because we were so small, my job duties also encompassed many other things). But obviously it was hugely rewarding working with survivors. Their strength and courage was, and continues to be, incredibly inspiring. But I am really excited to see what we are able to accomplish in terms of community change to end gender violence.
How have you changed or grown as a person through your work here? My work has taught me about the resiliency of the human spirit. I have witnessed compassion and empathy beyond what I thought was possible. And it has given me hope that the work that we are doing will lead to a society and world that does not tolerate violence in any way.
