Tracy Davis - Bookkeeper
Barbara E.R. Lucas
The start of 2008 brought a new person to the USITT National Office in Syracuse. Tracy Davis joined the National Office staff as bookkeeper, handling the day to day financial activities of the Institute.
Ms. Davis came to USITT from Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company where she was a claims assistant. As USITT's bookkeeper, she has been able to return to working with numbers, which she loves.
Carol Carrigan, Administrative & Finance Manager for USITT, said that having Ms. Davis as part of the organization gives the Institute a knowledgeable and detail-oriented person handling this crucial aspect of USITT's operations.
Ms. Davis first studied accounting to earn her two-year degree and then worked for a local newspaper before continuing at LeMoyne College to receive her BS in business administration.
While at LeMoyne, one of her favorite experiences was an internship with the Defense Contract Auditing Agency. There, she enjoyed "making the numbers dance into place," as she helped with report correlation and automating the process.
Ms. Davis is handling accounts receivable, accounts payable, and account reconciliations for USITT, but her most visible role, for most of the membership, may be her coordination and reconciliation of event catering at the Annual Conference. "I enjoyed that, it was something different, and I always look forward to getting involved in something new."
Ms. Davis enjoys spending time with her extended family, including outdoor adventures. Their motto seems to be "any reason to have a party," and that can mean anything from camping to karaoke.
She is an avid Syracuse University basketball fan who also admits to a strong interest in baseball, especially the New York Yankees.
