Life begins right where you are.




By all outward appearances, I had it all. A successful and rewarding career with a Fortune 500 company, a healthy family, and a life that looked happy. So why was I so restless? Why was there so much tension? Why would this longing for creating a new life not let me go?

I had seen glimpses of people living a different life. A life they created on their own terms that didn’t include the traditional path. It intrigued me. And it took me a few years to wrestle with whether or not I could actually do it. Could I leave everything I had worked so hard for in almost 20 years of Corporate America?

The answer was YES! And I did it! In 2014, I left a successful career in sales to focus on developing people and learning to live into who I was created to be. You can read more about my journey here.

I’ve learned to live and create a new story. One that includes sharing my wisdom on my blog,  hosting a podcast titled Right Where You Are, speaking engagements, and coaching clients to help them live into who they were created to be.

I  have been married to my best friend for 18 years. We have the privilege of raising two very active boys, and love to spend time together exploring new adventures. In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, biking, and spending time in nature. I look forward to connecting with you.

  1. Tammy,

    I don’t know if you live close to Topeka/KC – but I wanted you to know that my sister, Judy, and I will surprise Kathy and Dave with a quilt on Thursday, 3-29-12. We made the quilt using quotes from your “Lessons I learned from Jamie”. They were beautiful and so right on! I hope you don’t mind if we used them. I hope the quilt will be displayed at the Jamie’s Wish dedication on Friday afternoon. If you can’t come – let me know and I’ll send you a picture.
