November 1, 2018 — Our new Director of Communications for the Jesuits West Province comes from our own Jesuit family. Tracey Primrose, who served for the last six and ½ years as the Secretary for Communications for the Jesuit Conference, is joining our team at Jesuits West.
During her tenure at the Conference, Tracey and her team produced a tremendous amount of outstanding content for Jesuits.org and for all our province websites and publications. While she worked for the Jesuit Conference, Tracey served the entire Assistancy, including lending her talents recently to the communications team supporting the General’s visit to Canada and her work several years ago for GC 36.
Tracey helped spearhead the effort to bring individual province and vocation websites into one common content management system, an effort that is currently underway again as the communications directors reimagine our websites. I know they will be happy to have Tracey’s help on this important project.
A proud mother of four Jesuit-educated sons (Georgetown Prep, Gonzaga College High School and Boston College), Tracey first met the Jesuits as a student at Georgetown.
