Tracey Edmonds, a 15-year veteran of the entertainment industry, has established herself as an award-winning producer, savvy business mogul and accomplished studio executive. She has created and produced groundbreaking projects for television, music and film both independently and with major studios. She currently serves as the CEO of her own production company, Edmonds Entertainment and COO and President of Our Stories Films where she oversees the development and production of projects for urban audiences.
