Board Member
Tammy is joining MEF in 2021 after volunteering for events in 2019.  Tammy and her family most recently moved from Arkansas to her spouse’s native Colorado in the summer of 2019 to be close to family.  Tammy’s professional background can be seen as extremely diverse or extremely unsettled. Her background includes stints with the NBA in securing and fulfilling corporate partnerships, as a clinical research assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and an adjunct professor of Public Health Politics and Policy at the University of Arkansas.  Montessori education and methodology was introduced to Tammy during her graduate pedagogy coursework.  After further examination and study of Maria Montessori and her “alternative” school, Tammy fell in love with the learning environment created, practiced and replicated in today’s Montessori schools.  Prior to attending a charter Montessori School, Tammy and her family attended a private Montessori School in Arkansas where she was active in the school.  Currently, Tammy is a SAHM to her son Bennett and looks forward to working with DCS Montessori families to promote a strong and vibrant community of Montessori Learners, Guides and Parents.
