Hi I’m Traci!

MATchmaker. Recruiter. Entrepreneur. Eternal Optimist.

Are you thinking of jumping into the dating scene but not sure if you’re ready or not? I’ve got the perfect thing for you. Download my custom-curated self-reflective journal filled with introspective prompts that will give you the clarity you need.



Are you looking for Love?

Are you looking for a superstar employee or a job you love?

YOU landed here for a reason!

You want someone to share your life with. You are tired of being alone. You are beyond ready to move into the next phase of your life with the right person by your side.

  • Are you are sick and tired of the dating scene?
  • Are you constantly experiencing frustration in finding quality, like-minded people to date?
  • Are you lacking the time needed to search through endless online profiles and find that rare person who piques your interest?
  • Are you wondering WHEN is this going to happen for me?

You want better results, yet aren’t quite sure how to get there.


If you find yourself settling for second best because you think this is as good as it gets, or you do not want to end up alone, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.

I believe the biggest decision you will make in your life is who you choose to spend it with. As a matchmaker and dating and relationship coach, it’s my passion and life purpose to help others achieve success and fulfillment on their dating journey!

That journey starts the very moment you decide you are in full control of your life and your future – when you decide that you are not going to get where you want to be by doing the same thing you’ve always done.

If you want something different, you’ve got to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Let us take the confusion, frustration, and overwhelm out of the dating process. Love by Design has helped thousands of people realize their Happily Ever After. We will do the same for you!

Here’s to New Beginnings and Happily Ever Afters. The relationship of your dreams is closer than you think ….

Choose Love,

With Traci in my corner I always feel anything is possible!

“I started working with Traci in June 2015, after a thorough vetting process. We met in person before working together and Traci was easy to talk with and made me feel very comfortable. I asked for 3 references to confirm my initial impressions. Her references provided glowing recommendations, and now after working with Traci myself, I can concur wholeheartedly – finding Traci is like striking gold! Traci and I share many values, among them is the importance of being authentic. Our work together is a continuous inquiry into who I am, what I want in a partner, and what the next steps are to help me be in the relationship I desire. Traci’s expertise and gifted intuition has me approaching dating and relationships in a new and empowering way. Thanks to her expert and compassionate coaching, I met someone special on August 30. We are in an authentic, fun, pleasurable and intimate relationship. We’ve hit the occasional rough patch, and Traci has been there to help me see his perspective and my opportunity for growth. I am deeply grateful to her for helping me prepare myself!!”
