Tammy has been an orthopedic inpatient nurse for over 17 years taking care of postoperative patients. She actually found out that she passed her nursing boards on 9/11 and took this as a sign that nursing was her true calling and to do whatever was needed to help take care of as many people as possible in a nursing capacity. This is one of the reasons that OpWalk Carolinas is so appealing and exciting to Tammy, as well as providing more opportunities to learn and grow with this mission experience.
Tammy is originally from Iowa and graduated from Luther College with a Bachelor of Arts in Nursing. She is currently working at CMC – Mercy in Charlotte and has been there for over 5 years. In her free time, Tammy loves traveling and cheering on her favorite sports teams, the Iowa Hawkeyes and Carolina Panthers.
