Board Member - Tracy Herbst
DPCA Treasurer
Infant Swimming Resource
In 2006, Tracy embarked on a new career, teaching infant and toddler aquatic self-rescue lessons as a Certified Infant Swimming Resource instructor.  Prior to that she had spent her career in golf marketing and sales and admittedly, knew little about drowning or water safety.  Becoming an instructor changed all that and she quickly became educated and engaged.

Her involvement with the Drowning Prevention Coalition grew as her passion for and commitment to water safety and drowning prevention and aquatic survival grew.  With each student “self-rescue” story she is told, she knows she has found a place she really makes an impact.  Through teaching water safety and aquatic self-rescue, not only to the children but to their parents as well, she is serving the community as an advocate for water safety.

Prior to becoming a board member in 2012, Tracy served on the Advisory committee.  Tracy began the role of DPCA treasurer in 2016. She was a board member for Crisis Nursery in Phoenix for three years and has also volunteered as a fundraising event chair for Habitat for Humanity.  Tracy is a graduate of the University of Oregon where she received her bachelor’s degree in Business.
