She enjoys getting to know patients and feels that comprehensive understanding of a patient’s desires and wishes when it comes to plastic surgery will always allow her to guide them through the processes of their procedure.
Tammy loves to travel and has a goal to travel the world, one small or big trip a year, never visiting the same place twice. She loves kickboxing and can be found soul searching anytime there is a night of a beautiful sunset. She would say her best asset is her son and her two grandchildren, all of whom come first in her heart.
