Tammy is a driver manager with Marvin Keller and is originally from Lovington, IL. She has been with the company for 11 years, and has been a truck driver for 20 years. She studied fine arts and received her masters from UIC. Inspired by her high school teacher, Tammy pursued her degree in the arts. Her master’s thesis project was titled, “Dreamin’, Driving, Route 133” because of all the speeding tickets she was given on Route 133.
Once she decided she wanted a new career move, she chose to pursue her CDL from the driving school, CJ’s.
Tammy loved being a driver because it meant there is no boss over you. She equally loved seeing the country and creating relationships on her route. Being away from home is always hard and missing life events has been tough.
Alongside her partner Debbie, Tammy has raised four kids. They now have grandchildren.
She loves creating watercolors, acrylics, and pencil drawings.
