Tammy has always been driven by a desire to help people, and after college she spent over a quarter of a century as a practicing nurse. She worked in emergency rooms and hospitals, private doctors' offices, home health, and hospice. She has pretty much seen it all in the medical profession. Over that time period, she spent a significant amount of time filing insurance claims with Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance companies, as well as responding to billing questions from confused patients. She saw firsthand how unsuspecting patients are frequently confused by an overly complex system they don't understand.
Growing increasingly frustrated and disenchanted with the direction of the medical profession, Tammy eventually made the difficult decision to leave her chosen career and become an insurance agent where she could help people in a different way. She believed she could make more of a difference by helping people understand the medical system than by being a part of it. Since becoming an agent, she has worked with some of the largest and most reputable insurance carriers and agencies in the nation, and she has built a large and loyal clientele by way of her commitment to transparency and personalized service.
Tammy is experienced in many different areas of practice, but specializes in Medicare and senior health issues, including Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans, as well as long-term care and other health-related expenses.
