Tracy Ann Battaglia – Director of Media and Communcations

Tracy Ann is a wife, mother, entrepreneur, and educator. She and her husband, Nate, and son, Mateo, love adventures. Their greatest yet was escaping the frozen winters of rural Illinois to embrace the blossoming desert of Arizona. 

Tracy graduated with a degree in photography from Illinois State University. She has taken many of the images on our website. Since graduating she has owned her own photography and education business. She offers wedding, editorial, content/branding, lifestyle, and fine art photography. She teaches entrepreneurship startup workshops and photography courses one-on-one and at the Desert Botanical Gardens.

Other adventures that make her come alive are gardening, puzzles, painting, hiking the desert with her family, traveling to the beach, and simply hanging out at home. She is a complete nerd about Harry Potter, superheroes, and reading young adult fiction.
