About The Speaker

Tracie Burress | Evofem Biosciences, AuthorTracie A. Burress is currently a Regional Sales Executive for Evofem Biosciences in Los Angeles, California. Her marketing and sales career started with various Corporate positions that eventually led her to the highly competitive and coveted Pharmaceutical Industry. In this role, Tracie has amassed countless Regional and National awards including the top award of the Presidents’ Club multiple times. These accomplishments allowed her to achieve the highest Sales position (Executive) which is reserved for the most elite sales representatives within the Pharmaceutical Sales Industry.

Tracie was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, and later moved to Rockford, IL where she lived with her family for 25 years. While in Rockford she was an active member of the community.

After winning first place in the regions Eigerlab fast pitch contest, Tracie set her goal on pitching her product on a National stage. After auditioning during an open casting call, Tracie achieved that goal and in November of 2015 SockTABs was featured on ABC’s hit TV show Shark Tank!
