Hi! My name is Tammy. Welcome to my blog. Two years ago, I made some life changes and decided to document a portion here. I have three adult children who, over the past 4 years, have evolved to need/want less and less of my attention, at the same time, a little more than 4 years ago, I met the man of my dreams. Those two things alone mean huge life changes!
I had been doing a lot of reflecting on how my life and career have evolved as the primary, and for the past many years, sole provider and caregiver for my offspring. This has led to even more reflecting on what I want my life to look like now that I can turn my attention a bit towards my needs. Being loved everyday by my partner, Brent, has opened up a part of my brain I don’t think had been used before. It’s pretty great.
I’ve worked rather diligently for the past 24 years attempting to make the world a better place for a variety of people. The universe and a few chance encounters with global health leaders reminded me what it feels like to know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing at this exact moment. And so that it what I’m doing.
I took a six month sabbatical from work before I started graduate school in September of 2016. We traveled around the US visiting 13 cities and six countries. I dove deep into graduate school, received my master’s of science in global health science and set out to make my way as a researcher.
You’re welcome to follow along here.
