Tracey lived in Thailand from  2005 – 2015 and gained extensive experience in International Secondary School Education both through her own children at Tri-lingual Schools and through Managing operations and Student Counselling at CETA Thailand, liaising with Australian School providers in Thailand, AEAS testing and leading Short Term Study Tour programs to many countries.
