Tracy L. Tress, Founder and Owner, has 19 years of experience in representing many health care interests, including mental health, substance abuse, institutional providers and health professionals. She has also worked with labor groups, municipalities and early childhood health and education providers.
Tracy has a solid record of delivering for her clients. Whether its securing millions of dollars for health care facilities and higher education initiatives; enhancing health care consumer protections and access to care; or making the workplace safer for employees, she knows how to talk to Albany's decision makers to get things done.
Tracy began her working career as a Registered Nurse in upstate New York.

Tracy Tress Forms New Government Affairs Firm
...
GLENMONT, N.Y. - Tracy Tress, a veteran health policy advocate and lobbyist, today announced that she has formed her own government affairs firm, Tress Capitol Advisors.
Ms. Tress has extensive experience in representing clients from the for-profit and non-profit sector in a variety of issue areas. She said that one goal in starting the firm was to focus on cutting-edge policy developments in the health care sector, including behavioral health, which is undergoing significant changes.
"The health care sector is experiencing dramatic upheaval," Ms. Tress said. "The real world effects of policy changes are significant and growing. Stakeholders need all the help they can get in ensuring that their voice is heard in this new environment."
Ms. Tress was a senior government affairs representative at Malkin & Ross in Albany for 16 years, where she managed the firm's health and human services portfolio. She is a former intensive care unit nurse, who has specialized in representing health care institutions and professions, health policy organizations, special education entities, human services providers, patient advocacy organizations and municipalities.
"The first job of a Registered Nurse is to advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. Nursing has informed my work every step of the way and has fueled my passion for making certain that my clients always get a fair audience," Ms. Tress said.
Throughout her career, Ms. Tress has been a key player in several notable legislative successes, including: Establishing a funding source for the NYS Health Foundation; advancing the Women's Health and Wellness Act; ending mandatory overtime for nurses; creating a scholarship and loan forgiveness program for nurse educators; securing millions in funds for health care institutions; expanding access to prescription drugs for Medicaid recipients; and opposing changes to special education services that adversely impact children.
...
Tracy has an acute strategic sense that enables her clients to achieve what is possible even in difficult policy environments. When legislation authorizing the Empire Blue Cross conversion was being crafted, it was Tracy who suggested salvaging 5% of the proceeds for the New York State Health Foundation, which has become an incredibly important resource for public health and health policy in this State."
Laura Caruso, Chief of Staff, 32BJ SEIU, said: "From the perspectives of a former client and from inside government, I know that Tracy cares about the merits, substance and politics of issues.
...
Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds, Executive Director, Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, said:"Having worked with Tracy for over a decade, I know first hand that she has been a tireless, dedicated advocate for vulnerable populations, including people living with HIV/AIDS and those struggling with addiction.
...
Tracy has met this challenge by becoming a trusted voice in the state's health care debate. As a result, she has made a real difference in consumer access to care."
Tress is a native of upstate New York. She graduated from St. Mary's Hospital School of Nursing in Amsterdam, N.Y. and Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y. After working as a registered nurse, she attended the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy and obtained a Masters Degree in Public Affairs.
Ms. Tress and her husband, Herschel Tress, M.D., have two sons.
