Tammie joined us in late August 2019 and is covering the Leave for Renee T. Family Development Program Manager.
Tammie was employed with Big Brothers Big Sisters in two locations (Victoria and Vancouver) for nearly 17 years.
She started as a Mentoring Coordinator in 2002. In that role, she recruited, screened, and trained volunteer mentors and then matched them with their mentees in the Community Mentoring Program. In 2008, she took on a role with Big Brothers in Vancouver where she was again employed as a Mentoring Coordinator but this time overseeing matches in our school programs. Soon after, she was promoted to Manager of Site-Based Programs and this is a role she was active in until joining our agency in August 2019.
Tammie holds two degrees, the first being a Bachelor of Science with a Major in Psychology and the second is a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Victoria. The BSW through UVic focused on anti-oppression practice.
We welcome Tammie to our agency and the community!
