    Hey

    Try this as one approach.

    =SUMIFS({Tracker Range 1}, {Tracker Range 1}, >0, {Tracker Range 2}, FIND("Terri", @cell) = true)

    In your original formula you had a couple of opportunities. One, SUMIF can only be used with one criteria. You have two. For that reason, anytime I need a SUMIF/SUMIFS function, I prefer to use the SUMIFS (plural) function which always works even if only one criteria is needed. You also had some syntax errors and bracketing errors.
