Tracey’s Words : Vibrant Courageous Kind
I am the owner of That’s A Wrap Catering.here in Peterborough, ON. I am also co-owner of Classic Home Cooking, a meal delivery service for Seniors and busy families.
Self-taught in the culinary arts, I got my start by providing homemade lunches and meals to friends and family. After years of private catering in my spare time while I held a desk job, I became restless and started working on my bucket list.
I obtained my ACZ commercial drivers license and hit the road….literally. From 2007 until 2013 I hauled freight in an 18 wheeler to almost every province and State in North America. They say in life you should do something that scares you everyday…pretty easy to do when you’re in charge of an 18 wheeler.
With more than a Million safe miles under my belt, I quickly noticed how difficult it was to eat healthy while living the life of a long haul truck driver. This is when the idea of healthy eating on the go started to form.
I took a huge leap of faith and gave up a well paying job to focus on a new path, both personally and professionally.
My dream became a reality when Anne Arnold put me in touch with John Cunningham at Ashburnham Funeral and Reception Centre. His commercial kitchen was not being used and I was looking for just such a thing. It seemed a match made in heaven. John’s philosophy is simple. “In order for each of us to succeed, we must first help each other” In the years that I havebeen working alongside John, he has inspired me to want to help others in that same way.
Through my catering business, I have seen many events where people gather. Weddings, funerals, fundraisers, etc. It is due to this exposure that I have re-evaluated my own life. I want to have an impact.
I am the incoming President for the 2018-19 Women’s Business Network, a proud member of The Peterborough Rotary Club, and a LOVE LOCAL Sponsor with The Peterborough Chamber of Commerce. I have been helped by many along the way. It is my desire to pay it forward and offer the same support to those around me.
