Her love of travel started very young with yearly cross country road trip with the family and adventures around the state through Girl Scouts and Bowling. At the age of 17 she enlisted in the U.S. Navy and graduated early from high school, leaving for bootcamp before the rest of her classmates had even graduated. The Navy took her to Florida, California and Alaska. While in the Navy, Tammy met and married a fellow sailor. They had 5 kids together over the course of the years, finally settling down and making their home in Anchorage, Alaska.

Tammy spent over 10 years working with nearly 150 pregnant women and their families as a Labor and Postpartum Doula and as an apprentice Midwife. She apprenticed at Heritage Birth Center in Anchorage, Alaska for 2 years before her last child was born in 2013. While on a sabbatical from her apprenticeship, she discovered a new passion, Massage Therapy, and with the support and love of her new partner, Travis, the idea of Marvelous Massage was born and together they embarked on this transforming journey.
