Tracey McDonald-Sands

Chief Administrative Officer

I began my career in the automotive industry in 2017. Since then I have come to absolutely love this fast-paced environment and the family that I work with each day. I could have never imagined all of the intricacies of this industry. I have already gained a vast amount of knowledge in the automotive industry and look forward to continuing to learn more each day.

I graduated with my B.S. in Business Management, with an emphasis in Human Resources from the University of Baltimore. I came to DCD with over 20 years in the retail world, working for a nationwide retailer with over 10,000 employees in 48 states. I eventually decided to leave the retail environment and worked for a great non-profit organization that specialized in offering mental health services. That was truly a rewarding experience that helped me grow and understand the importance of mental health. I learned not only how it impacts so many on a daily basis, but what I can do to help. I pride myself on learning as many facets of the organization as possible, which ultimately helps me understand how to better champion both the company and staff to work towards the same goal.

I have extensive experience in Human Resources, Employee Relations, Training, Payroll, Risk Management, Customer Service, and Compliance. In my quest for continued growth, I am honored to be able to utilize both my past experiences and the opportunities DCD has provided to me by taking on additional responsibilities. Working with Dan and Chris and seeing first hand how they value staff is truly a great feeling, especially for someone in the business of supporting others.

I was born in Pennsylvania and raised in Maryland ~ I was lucky enough to encounter the best of both worlds growing up with Maryland crabs and Pennsylvania Dutch whoopie pies. In order to be with my best friend, now husband, I moved up to Massachusetts in 2017. I enjoy spending any downtime with my two daughters, stepsons, and husband. I love to cook, bake, and make people smile.

I look forward to continuing to grow with the DCD family. I truly work with a great team and it is true that teamwork makes the dream work!
