Tracie Turner

Resort Supervisor

Born and raised in LaGrange, Ga, Tracie moved to Blairsville in Sept 2013 with her husband, Joe. Tracie's first job was at a boarding and grooming facility in 1999 where she continued to work on and off for the next 12 years. In April of 2018, Tracie received her certificate of completion from Penn Foster as a Certified Dog Obedience Instructor/Trainer. Tracie has always had a passion for all living creatures and considers herself truly lucky to have a career doing what she loves.  Her greatest joy comes from working with the pets that are too shy or afraid and seeing them open up after some love and patience. When Tracie's not working, you can find her spending time with her fur kids and husband. They love being outdoors hiking, kayaking, camping or visiting family back home. Tracie and Joe have 3 dogs, Goose, a 6 year old Lab mix, Vinny, a 1 year old Mix breed, and Opie a 9 year old Hound mix.  They also have 2 cats, Bahc and Punky.
