Tammy joined the LCMCS team in June of 2016 as Finance Manager after five years of volunteering and serving on the LCMCS PTO as Treasurer for two of those years as a parent to a LCMCS alum. Her attention to detail rounds out the administrative team. She earned a BA in Physical Anthropology at Beloit College in Wisconsin that has aided in her understanding of the whole picture; how the smallest part is integral to the whole. In her free time, she enjoys being outside as much as she can.
