Meet the Director of Program Services

Traci Foyster has worked with Parents Reaching Out since January of 2007, originally as a volunteer, but she was then offered the position of Pediatric Intensive Care Support Coordinator.  In February of 2010, she was offered the position of Director of Program Services.  Traci believes strongly in the mission of Parents Reaching Out, she has been there.  As the mother of a former 26 week premature son, Dylan, Traci understands the support needs of families.  Her son weighed 2 lbs and 2 oz when he was born and spent approximately 7 months in a Southern California NICU. 

Looking back on this difficult period, Traci believes that she could have greatly benefited from the support of those who had been through something similar  while their son was hospitalized, but there was no program like Parents Reaching Out.  When Traci and her family moved to Nashville in 2005, she was excited to find the support services I had needed and knew immediately that she wanted to be involved.  


Traci has a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Psychology and is a licensed MFT in the State of California.  While she does not provide therapy services to the families that she works with, she does have a wonderful understanding of the issues, feelings, and support needs of families.  

How can I volunteer?
