Mary Fischer Tracy
Interim Director at SBDC at UW-Parkside
Mary’s areas of expertise are business plans as well as financial planning, projections, and packaging. She likes serving as a mentor and ally to clients and helping them in any way they need. She lets clients set the tone and the goals that fit them best, so there is no added pressure from Mary.
She really enjoys meeting with clients and reassuring them they are not crazy and that, yes, this is difficult but she can help them manage the stress of it all. She loves finding out about new businesses, being a part of their start-ups, and sharing what she has learned along the way from being a business owner herself at Picadilly Antiques.
It makes Mary proud when clients actually open their doors for business, and she likes to continue to be an advocate and mentor for clients when their businesses are up and running. Outside of work, she enjoys antique shopping, reading, hanging out with friends and family and being a Mom and Grandma.
