Tracey McCartney joined the Tennessee Fair Housing Council in February 1998. Tracey is an attorney, admitted to the bars of both Alabama and Tennessee. She received a law degree from the University of Alabama in 1995.

She recruited and trained 90 testers for the center's enforcement program.

Since joining the Tennessee Fair Housing Council in February 1998, Tracey has overseen the day-to-day operations of the office. Her duties include setting the broad direction of the agency; supervising the enforcement staff on testing, case intake and litigation; and supervising the operation of the National Fair Housing Advocate web site at .
