On October 7, 2017, OFN staff member Tracey Mitchell passed away in her home. The OFN family was shocked and saddened to learn of this news.
Since the day Tracey joined OFN in November 2015 as a receptionist, she was a warm and positive presence. She was known for greeting staff and visitors with a bright smile in our Philadelphia office. In late 2016, Tracey advanced to a new role as office manager. Her leadership in this role was refreshing. She was dedicated to the work of the CDFI industry, and she shared her passion for equity with OFN staff, hosting lunch and learns around the topic. Most recently, in 2017, Tracey happily took on the duty of supporting President and CEO, Lisa Mensah.
OFN staff will miss her smile, laughter, willingness to learn, and focus on making sure that others were taken care of. Tracey was an integral part of the OFN family and is missed daily.
