Tracy BaldwinRadio Flyer Alumni Contributor
Tracy is a big fan of Radio Flyer and Radio Flyer products, and has worked with the company in PR and brand communicatons on and off over the past five years. She grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, attended Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!) and Northwestern University (Go Cats!) and currently resides in Chicago with her husband and three young children. She is a working mom who struggles to find balance and sanity in the crazy day-to-day of her life. She loves hanging out with her family, taking walks at the Chicago Botanic Garden or along Lake Michigan and hiking in the Rockies. She does more looking at her food magazines than actual cooking, and enjoys her guilty pleasures of watching GLEE and reading People magazine. Soon, she may need to seek professional help for her addiction to social media.
Our lives are not made by the dreams we dream, but by the choices we make.
Favorite Family Vacation:
Since I was in grade school, I've gone to Clearwater Beach, Florida almost every year. I now enjoy going with my own family and just relaxing at the beach. I love the sound of the waves--so soothing.
Favorite Outdoor Escape:
I love to go to the beach, or hike in the mountains.
Favorite Childhood Outdoor Game:
Capture the flag!
Favorite Family Activity:
Going on road trips with my family is fun. I love the sense of adventure and the fact that we are all together without the worries and craziness of the everyday routines at home.
Favorite Childhood Memory:
I really enjoyed big holidays with my family. Everyone coming together around the table for a great meal. I try to continue that tradition with my family today.
Favorite Radio Flyer Product and Why:
My kids really loved the steer and stroll sport coupe as toddlers. There's something about opening and closing a little car door, getting behind the wheel and driving that is just so enchanting to them! My two oldest love the Groove and Shockwave scooters because they are fun to ride, and they also know mom worked on the commercials. Their current favorite is the Ziggle!
