I'm Tracy 

I'm a PA who burned out, big time, and now I teach PAs to negotiate effectively because every PA deserves a paycheck they are proud of and to feel valued at work. I love leopard print, skiing, and my morning routine. My mission? To help PAs stop feeling overworked, underpaid and overwhelmed and start feeling valued and earning what they deserve.

For years I was underpaid as a PA – it wasn’t until *this* year that I realized I wasn’t being paid what I am worth, not because I’m not skilled, but because I don’t know how to negotiate well. I was busy doing surgery, rushing home to see my kids, and staying in my own lane, keeping my head down and cashing my paycheck. I didn’t understand how to leverage my PA skills to get a raise.

But things changed when I got *super* burned out in the middle of a global pandemic. I was disconnected from my work, actually physically ill and emotional past the point of no return and I quit my job. As I’ve navigated these last two years it’s become clear to me that PAs are providing huge economic value to practices, improving patient care, and it’s mind-blowing how poorly we are compensated.

I’m sharing the five most common mistakes that PAs make when asking for a raise. You deserve more. You are worth more. These negotiation mistakes and what to do instead are going to help you craft a pitch that will land you that raise, better hours, admin time, and maybe even another PA in your office to share the load.

I’d avoided my own negotiations too long, because… sweaty armpits and *I work with surgeons*… but creating a plan for negotiating and executing it, even with nerves, ended up being one of the biggest blessings to our family. I have learned how to leverage my PA skills to earn the raise that I’m worth.

It's so nice to meet you... I’m a PA Mom life coach, self-care promoter, curly haired achiever, mom and dog mom, and a margarita drinking badass.

I burned out working as a PA... BIG TIME. I quit my job, doubled my hourly income earned, work half as much and learned to build a life around the things that I value instead of a schedule set by someone else and now I get to share all that I've learned with you. 

oh hey!

Now I teach PAs to do the same.
