About Me

Upon graduation from Peru State College in 1993 Tracy VanDyke was looking for a career that would provide her with professional growth opportunities, personal flexibility and the ability to have positive impact on the lives of people she came into contact with.

After careful consideration of all her options Tracy decided to follow her father, John Shannon, and join Northwestern Mutual as a financial representative. In 1996, John Shannon passed away following a battle with lung cancer and Tracy began to work with the clientele he had developed relationships with in addition to her existing clientele.

Tracy has seen many changes to Northwestern Mutual and the financial services industry, but the one thing that has remained constant is creating relationships with people and working with them to assist in achieving their goals and dreams.

Tracy earns and maintains the respect of her peers through a practice that performs on a consistent basis while never compromising the ethical values that her father instilled in her and that she wishes for her boys. Through this foundation of excellence Tracy has developed the NorthStar Wealth Navigation team to ensure their clients are cared for, for generations to come.
