Tracy has been with KEVA since the beginning and knows many members by name. She began her career at KEVA by developing the My First Sports and Athletic Kids youth programs in her first ten years with the company. Some of her first students are now coming back from college to say “hi.” She secretly hopes one of her students signs a professional athletic contract and appears on her doorstep with the 10% finders fee.
Currently Tracy is in charge of Overall Facility Operations as President of the company. Tracy hails from Burlington, Wisconsin (as most famous people do-Tony Romo) and has a degree in Child Psychology from UW-Madison. When she’s not hanging with your kids or families at KEVA, she’s cooking, camping and chilling with her family and friends.

Four score and seven years ago, Annie Kraemer hadn’t been born yet, but everyone felt her presence coming. Annie tends to blast her way into most situations and activities, earning her the nickname Mack Truck. This intense and spirited personality has helped her turn her front desk staff into the lean, mean*, customer service machine that it is. *(front desk staff not actually mean and is, in fact, extremely nice) Annie also takes care of any HR issues and some would go as far as to say she is the HR Czar. Along with wrangling the front desk staff and any HR issues, Annie spends her time playing as many sports as she can fit into her schedule and taking care of her two cats and two dogs. One day, she hopes to rule KEVA with an iron fist, but until then she will bide her time thinking of new ways to enhance the KEVA experience for everyone.
