Tracy Roloff was appointed to the Broward Cultural Council in 2011 by Commissioner Chip LaMarca. She started her professional career as a fundraiser at the Florida Grand Opera in 1997. During her tenure at the Opera, she helped to build relationships with patrons and develop community awareness and support not just for the organization, but also for the art form. She worked to engage and inspire a younger generation of opera supporters, inspiring their appreciation for classical music.
She also served as the Director of Development for the Museum of Discovery and Science where she played a critical role in the drive to build the new state-of-the-art EcoDiscovery Center that opened in November, 2011. Working in the non-profit sector for nearly 20 years, she is committed to South Florida's non-profit community whether serving in a professional or volunteer capacity. Over the years, she has provided leadership in raising money and awareness at such organizations as Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and Take Stock in Children, just to name a few.
She currently runs her consulting company, Nickel Consulting Group, helping her clients meet their fundraising aspirations by developing strategic fundraising and marketing/PR plans. A native Floridian, she is proud to call Fort Lauderdale home where she and her husband, Ari Roloff, raise their 13 year old daughter, Amelia.
