GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, MA PUBLIC HEALTH | US COAST GUARD
FOCUS AREA: HEALTH POLICY
As an Operations Specialist Third Class Petty Officer, Tammy served in the U.S. Coast Guard from 1995 to 2003 on board the USCGC Chase and VTS Houston - Galveston. Her most significant accomplishment was the Coast Guard Achievement Medal for an incident which could quickly have become a Homeland Security Threat. To continue her mission to serve others, she completed a Mission Continues fellowship as a Policy Associate at Student Veterans of America. The fellowship provided the opportunity to continue her involvement with student veterans and reinforce her confidence within the political arena. Her motivation continues as a semi-finalist candidate for Ms. Veteran America 2018, Northeast Field Organizer for Minority Veterans of America, and a board member of the Delaware County Veteran Memorial Association.
