Tracy Harris, an Army and National Guard veteran, is the founder of HOPEvolution, an organization that helps servicemen and women transition from the battlefield to federal career. HOPEvolution was founded in July of 2017. Approaching retirement from the Department of Justice after 24 years of service, Ms. Harris had a strong desire to use the second phase of her career to assist veterans who had a desire to extend their service to their country through federal civilian employment. After 16 years of being an active participant in the federal hiring process as a Human Resource Specialist, Tracy came to understand what a great candidate for federal employment looks like and what the barriers are for those who apply, but are not selected. As a result, Tracy’s passion for human resource management and determination to help veterans understand the benefit of continued service through federal employment resulted in the start of HOPEvolution. Tracy studied at Oklahoma State University, Barton County College, and Bryan Institute. Certified through SBA - Boots to Business-Reboot, she’s an alumni of Syracuse University - Institute for Veterans and Military Families Human Resources (SPHR) Onward to Opportunity Career Course, completed certification of OPM - Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), and OPM-Delegated Examining. HOPEvolution’s growth goal is to become the premier expert in assisting service members, veteran, reservists, national guardsmen and their families with increasing their odds of gaining federal employment.
