Tammy is passionate about helping those with EDS and related disorders since watching her mother suffer and then pass away in 2004 without ever knowing the cause of her ailments.
In 2009, Tammy was diagnosed with what is formerly called Type 2 or Mild Classical Type of EDS. She has attended 2011 and 2012 EDNF Conferences, the 2016 Ehlers Danlos Society Global Learning Conference, and EDS Wellness, Wellapalooza, Integrative Health, and Wellness Conference in 2017.
She is the creator and administrator for Ehlers-Danlos Joint Hypermobility on Facebook, which currently has over 600 members.
Tammy went to school for Healthcare Management so she could help others with EDS. She graduated magna cum laude in 2016, and soon after she was elected to the Board of Directors for Ehlers-Danlos Network CARES.
In the past, she had been a successful Entrepreneur and salon owner for over 9 years.
