Head Olive - Traci

Traci is the creator of and team-leader at The Olive Bin. Her favorite product at the store is Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and uses it to make a supreme pasta salad. The most rewarding part of owning The Olive Bin is coordinating and watching her team grow. To Traci, employees and customers are part of her family. Traci enjoys ballroom dancing with her husband Bruce (go Bruce!), scrapbooking, and putting together jigsaw puzzles in her free time.
