Traci Anderson

Office & Finance Manager, and Bookkeeper | Austin, Texas

Traci is a native Austinite who grew up in towns scattered throughout south, central and east Texas before returning to her Austin roots to attend St. Edward’s University. Armed with a B.A. in History, she worked at The French Legation as a docent and events coordinator before transitioning to the private software industry. Most recently Traci was on staff at Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine where she spent a decade overseeing the magazine’s finances, while also serving as contributing writer and photographer, website administrator and assisting with marketing and subscriber acquisition. Not surprisingly, much of her published content focuses on the history of the places she has visited.

History has always been a passion for Traci, to the consternation of her family as they were forced to stop at historical markers and museums on every family road trip. Something her family does all agree on however, is baseball.  She enjoys cheering on her husband and sons as they play, umpire or coach.  Her non-profit volunteer experience includes serving on the Board of the Oak Hill Youth Sports Association, the largest recreational youth baseball and softball program in Central Texas), where she is currently President.

Working for Friends of THC brings together her non-profit and history backgrounds, giving her the opportunity to support the stories, cultures, people and places for present and future generations.
