As a proven community leader, professionally trained facilitator and authentic leadership expert, Tammy has an innate ability to build a sense of community around a cause she cares deeply about. After a 20-year career in corporate sales, Tammy resigned to be a full-time mom and student. While completing formal training in Leadership Coaching and Adult Learning Theories, she formed Caledon’s Leadership Forum for Women. “The Forum” is a volunteer initiative that consistently attracts a large audience of heart-centred professionals who share a passion for authentic leadership and women’s empowerment.

Tammy believes when a community of caring individuals come together for a common cause, anything is possible. It is for this reason she joined the Volunteer MBC Team, promoting compassionate, connected communities through volunteerism.
