Tracy Miller
Membership Relations & Sales Director

As far back as Tracy can remember, she has always been around designing and creativity. As a child she watched her mother create wedding cakes and design floral arrangements. Tracy spent most of her adult life working in law enforcement. In 2009, while still working in law enforcement, she was asked by a friend to help her plan her son’s wedding. With Tracy being the “fixer” that she is, she took on the challenge, and it was a huge success. After just one event she began to receive requests for help with other events, and it quickly became her hobby. She started with making cupcakes for birthday parties, then floral arrangements for weddings and eventually designing an entire wedding on her own.

After continuing her hobby for almost six years, Tracy ended her law enforcement career and decided to launch her own successful event coordinating business named Oh So Purdy. Tracy's passion is planning, orchestrating and designing weddings and events. She enjoys helping people and sharing her knowledge she has learned over the years from past experiences and working with other coordinators and other local vendors.

In her spare time, Tracy is a wife and mother to two amazing boys. You can find Tracy watching their events at the baseball field or on the golf range.
