Tracey Wright is a native of Dickson, Tennessee, who currently calls Lebanon, Virginia, located in Russell County home. She is married to Dr. Tommy Wright and she has two adult daughters Jayma Holt Moore and Jaynae Wright. Tracey is a proud first generation college student, who credits a good portion of any success she has been blessed to receive to wise guidance received from her grandfather, James Bartlett who was denied the opportunity to receive an education. He taught her to “put something in your head, for it something no one can ever take from you.” Wright enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, traveling, cooking, entertaining, volunteering, and working on issues that she is passionate about.
