Tracy Fink

A challenging relationship with her mother-in-law incentivized Tracy Fink to learn more about meditation after she saw the positive effects it was having on a friend of hers. “I noticed some very subtle changes in how she responded to events that I know had caused her stress and pain in the past,” Tracy says. “She had a different way about her after she had been practicing.” As Tracy learned more, she discovered some of those same benefits for herself. While her mother-in-law didn’t change, the way she saw her did. She was able to bring more compassion to their interactions, improving their relationship — and that was just the beginning. Now a coach, teacher, and speaker who is passionate about showing people how to become “unstuck” and flourish in their environments, Tracy is the founder of The Tortoise Institute, which offers leadership development workshops, one-on-one coaching, and meditation training in corporate, community, and individual settings. Previously, Tracy was the director of marketing and of the Executive Women’s Forum (EWF), an inclusive business development program she conceived and executed nationwide at CohnReznick LLP, an advisory, assurance, and tax services firm. She is a frequent speaker on topics such as the business case for mindfulness, self-care methods, and self-compassion as a strategy for resiliency. Tracy thrives on the love of her family and friends, adventurous travel, collaborative cooking, and college football.
