About Traci

tracyHi! Thanks for reading the Brandywine Family Buzz. I’m Traci Manza Murphy, the “voice” of the Buzz and the Buzz’s primary editor. I started the Buzz with friend and business partner Patrick Callahan in 2007, when my daughter was 2. Her twin brothers arrived the next winter; my husband and our three kids (now 7, 5, 5) live in Wilmington, Delaware. There are always bikes and scooters in the driveway, soccer balls in the yard, and laundry waiting for attention in the dryer. In addition to the Buzz, I’m part of the fund development and membership department at Winterthur Museum.

I’m a University of Delaware grad and proud Blue Hen. In my free time, you can find me cheering on the sidelines of Hockessin Soccer Club, reading my next Book Group book, watching tv, enjoying some down time in Dewey Beach.
