Tracy Wilson was born into a military family stationed overseas and grew up in many different locations in the United States due to her family's military commitment. Never in any one place for very long, she found solace in the great outdoors. She was taught survival and bush crafting skills by her father, and other family members, and developed a
deep love and respect for nature. Tracy would later enter the military and law enforcement, like her family before her, but she never lost her love for the land. As an adult, she's continued to learn and hone her skills and has even begun passing lessons onto her children and to anyone willing to learn.
