Tracy A. Vanairsdale


Intentional designs through a
collaborative approach.

Tracy joined Bettisworth North in 1997 and became a firm Principal in 2007, managing the Fairbanks office. Born and raised in Fairbanks, Tracy is a true community builder who has a great love for Alaska and is dedicated to creating a better built environment and better communities through her career and volunteer work. Tracy’s experience with commercial, education, health, and civic projects encompasses the full development of a successful design, from initial concept through construction administration. She believes that collaboration is essential to create a successful design solution and enjoys working in the collaborative environment fostered at Bettisworth North.

Tracy’s goal is to surpass the client’s expectations and provide the most creative, technically feasible, and energy efficient solution to their design challenges. Following her interest in the environment, she became one of the first few LEED-accredited professionals in Alaska through the United States Green Building Council in 2003.

From hiking in Denali National Park, skiing into remote cabins for a weekend getaway, to floating the Chilikadrotna River with her husband Dave and dog Copper, Tracy loves being outside, enjoying everything Alaska has to offer.
