We were immediately taken by the dynamic Tracye Williams when we spotted her at a recent event hosted by the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP). Williams relocated to the area last year to assume the role of Executive Director of the AdventHealth Ocala Foundation and is enjoying the adventure of getting to know our community. When she and her husband first visited, she was so taken with the romantic feel of Fort King Street with its historic buildings and oak trees covered with Spanish moss, that she chose it for the setting of her shoot.
