MBA, CCP - Master EAL Instructor
With a passion for developing strong leaders and a love of horses, Tracey left her successful career as a marketing executive in 2012 to open Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning Centre with her partner Dirk Tews. As a certified Business Coach and Master Certified Equine Assisted Learning Instructor, Tracey delivers innovative leadership, team building and life skills development programs for corporate teams, sports teams, youth groups, families and private groups using horses as guides. An avid equestrian and former senior marketing executive, she brings together her horse sense and over 15 years of leading high performing teams to help others develop critical skills to enable them to reach their full potential. The foundation of Dreamwinds programs is the Cartier Farms EAL Building Block Curriculum which uses carefully designed objective based team exercises that allow participants to learn how to communicate, lead and work effectively with a horse which in turn develops and hones critical skills that are important to success in work, school and life. In 2015, Tracey achieved her Master EAL Instructor Certification and Dreamwinds became the only Certified Satellite Training Facility for the renowned Cartier Farms EAL Certification Program making the program more accessible to Eastern Canada.
Prior to opening Dreamwinds, Tracey completed her MBA in Strategic Marketing and pursued her marketing career in the telecom and financial services industry. Just prior to leaving the corporate world to pursue her passion, Tracey held the senior role of Vice President of Merchant Services Marketing for American Express leading the Merchant Services marketing teams for Latin America, Canada and the Caribbean.
