Experience in the banking industry, serving on several boards of directors as treasurer, and handling the financial responsibilities of her own small business and family finances has taught Tammy how to be financially conservative, whether it be in business or personal . She does not have a spend thrift mentality. "I grew up in a family business, I learned early the importance of financial responsibility and what it took to make a living. This is how I function in my own business and in my family. When you are entrusted with the money of the public, it should mean even greater responsibility and higher standards in the way in which you use and spend that money."

These include educational issues, the 2nd Amendment, Constitutional Amendments, Veteran, taxes, marriage, abortion and more. She has had the opportunity to speak and work with many national and state leaders regarding these important issues. This has been a very valuable, and educational experience for her.
