Prior to her role at WomenVenture, Tammy worked for almost twenty years as a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. She then pivoted, became a CPA, and spent five years in public accounting. She has combined her passion for helping others with her accounting background in her role as a Business Consultant at WomenVenture. Tammy is a member of Zonta International, a group whose mission is to create a better world for women and girls, and she serves as Treasurer for her local chapter. She loves helping women start businesses and admires their courage to take the risk of betting on themselves. She volunteers at the local homeless shelter and worked with the MSU-Mankato community to start a student food pantry.
When she is not working or volunteering in the community, you can find her traveling with her husband, visiting her two adult sons, doing her best to walk 10,000 steps a day, and spending time with friends.
