Tammy grew up in a Jewish family where she learned the traditions of her faith. She embraced her heritage and became active in her local synagogue, continuing her involvement as a university student. Then one morning as she sang, God audibly spoke to the college senior with words she had never heard before: “Jesus is the Messiah. He is the Son of God.” Since that day, Tammy has been sharing the powerful testimony of her conversion, and teaching about the Jewish roots of Christian faith.

Family Life

Tammy is married to David, her best friend and partner in life. They live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with their two teenagers. The family stays busy enjoying each other’s varied passions, from music to basketball to theater and everything in between!
