A previous station volunteer, Tammy joined the staff of WUOT in late 2012 as the station’s office manager. A former employee of WKRR-FM in Greensboro, N.C., she received her bachelor’s degree from UT Martin and has been with the university for more than 20 years. Just before coming to WUOT, Tammy was the grants and contracts administrator for the UT College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), where two small dogs (a Westie girl named Nilla, and a Yorkie boy named Benji) joined her family, officially making her a dog-crazy, self-proclaimed “numbers nut.” Prior to her employment in the CVM, Tammy worked for the UT Press (the university’s book publisher) where, as its business manager, she managed the financial aspects of publishing.
When she isn’t taking photos of her dogs, Tammy serves as the president of the Volunteer Travelers, a local square dance club. In addition to square dancing, she enjoys round dancing (choreographed ballroom), contra dancing and an addiction to chocolate-covered cherries.
