Tammy is a dedicated, solution-focused community activist.
As current Chairperson of the South Boulevard Park Row Neighborhood Association and CEO/ founder of the Greater Communities of Fair Park, Inc., Tammy has proven to be a champion for the community and a capable, dedicated, voice for reason and sustainability.
Born in Youngstown, Ohio and raised in San Diego, California, Tammy learned from an early age that her passion lied in being a contributing member of her community. She has always felt drawn to being a voice for equality and progress; it was that passion that lead her to ‘Grambling State University’, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English. In 2008 Tammy came to Dallas and attended ‘The University of Texas at Dallas’ and graduated with a Masters in Science for Marketing Strategy.
While Tammy has had great success in the corporate world, holding senior leadership positions with ‘Sprint Nextel’, ‘TXU’, ‘Mary Kay Cosmetics’ and ‘General Electric Corp’, she has never abandoned her passion for community leading. Tammy has served on the board of ‘Catalyst Youth Leadership Foundation’, ‘South Dallas Community Fair Park Market’, and ‘Fair Park Texas Foundation’.
Tammy’s passion for community led initiatives, her marketing expertise and her success in navigating the corporate world have been a tremendous benefit to every project and organization she has been a part of. After becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of accountability and progress at Dallas City Hall, Tammy realized she must be the change she seeks and decided to run for City Council in District 7, because it is time that the residents of District 7 have a voice at Dallas City Hall that will stand up for what is in the best interest of the community-at-large.
Tammy prides herself in her ability to turn challenges into opportunities by creating out-of-the-box solutions which have brought about positive results. At ‘Sprint Nextel’ Tammy led an initiative that resulted in an increase of half a million new customers. Tammy knows how to get things done, she has proven herself to have passion and ability for building strong teams and communities that deliver results.
