In 2015 she relocated to Grand Rapids in Michigan, and thanks to two years at college and work experience, obtained the position of reporter and forecaster for WXMI. As Tracy herself stated in her Facebook biography, ‘Mitten state weather is a dream for any meteorologist.

Besides Star, Tracy is also the proud owner of Oliver Nacho, an orange cat, and Herbie, a Black-tailed Prairie Dog. A curiosity regarding her canine is that this species is illegal in Oregon, which is where she resides, and thus she had to obtain a special permit from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife – a Prohibited Species Permit. Additionally, she had to get an Invasive Species Permit from the Oregon Department of Agriculture. As Tracy herself stated, she is quite lucky to have all three parts of her herd.
