Tracy Nguyen
Digital Marketing Coordinator

Tracy has been with Bantr since it’s inception in 2015. Her educational background (and first love) is digital media and production. She is currently enrolled at Ryerson University for Sport Media. Her strong eye for detail and get-it-done attitude led her to want to pursue in online marketing. Passionate for all-things- media, she hopes to specialize in online marketing, social media, e-commerce & online operations. In her free time, she likes being on a computer and polishing up her skills. For the most part, you can find her cooking at home, on a hike, watching an NBA game, taking photos, or spending time with family, friends and her little chihuahua, Rogue. You can find Rogue sitting in classes with her at Ryerson 99% of the time. The two are inseparable.

Director of Smiles

Seymour is a rescue from the Basset Hound Rescue of Ontario. He is 9 years young and an advocate for rescue dogs everywhere that no matter how much you drool, there is a forever home waiting for you! Seymour enjoys hiking, walks to local Toronto parks and begging at the kitchen table while Danielle eats. He loves belly rubs and cuddles in bed as well as making guest appearance on Bay Street.

Director of “Awwww’s”

Small but fierce, Rogue is always upbeat and ready to seize the day. She never turns down a good game of basketball and loves to go on walks. Rogue is also a member of Ryerson’s community. You can find her roaming the halls, sitting in on lectures and watching sporting events with Tracy. Rogue’s enrolled in Sport Media Production and looks forward to graduating in 2019 as well. On the side note, she’s an extremely picky eater, so don’t bother trying to give her a treat, because she most likely won’t eat it unless its caviar or costs at least $100.
