Tammy’s Bio

I am an energetic, multi-tasking, caring individual with extensive life experience! I am CPR certified, and as a former EMT, and currently licensed dental hygienist, I have experience in handling medical emergencies. This also means I am very aware of infection control and how to help keep your home and family safe from things that can make them sick.

I am a mom to 3 grown sons (talk about medical emergencies!), and they can tell you about all of the stories I've read, the time spent just sitting and snuggling, hiking, camping, baking together, or helping them with homework. 10 of my 30 year career in dentistry was in pediatric dentistry, so I am comfortable with a broad range of kids, and how each one might need special considerations. I'm working on my master's in dental hygiene (online) with a focus on education, so I am happy to help with homework (yours or theirs).

I am also very comfortable and happy to sit with your mature loved ones. I knit, crochet, quilt, and love to read books, which I would be glad to do out loud. I love baking, cooking and sharing stories. My background in dentistry makes me uniquely qualified to understand the special medical concerns seniors might have, too.

Basically, I am ready to put a lifetime of talents, skills and experiences, along with my 23 years of parenting to work for you to support your family, both young and mature. I really look forward to hearing from you! -Tammy
