With more than two decades of experience in community outreach, media relations, public policy, and fundraising, Tammy joined HASA in 2008 where she currently serves as External Relations Director, managing the development and communications teams in building partnerships and support to expand HASA's reach throughout Maryland.

Her career began at a local community development corporation followed by a decade of health advocacy work at two national nonprofit healthcare organizations. During that time, she launched Relay For Life events in South Florida, spearheaded Baltimore's Go Red For Women campaign with The American Heart Association and led a capacity-building initiative for a network of policy research centers in 29 states at The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

At HASA, she leads the organization in outreach initiatives for various topics including education, hearing health, inclusion, language access, and speech-language issues. She has overseen a complete rebranding of the organization through the development of a new strategic communications plan, logo, and web presence. She launched The Baltimore Soundscape Project, which has received national attention since its inception in 2010.

A member of the American Society of Public Administration (ASPA), the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network (NTEN), Tammy also serves on the Community Advisory Board of WYPR. She received undergraduate degrees from West Chester University in Political Science and Public Administration and a Masters of Public Administration from Nova Southeastern University, with a concentration in Nonprofit Management.
