Tammy connected back into the Y, part of her time at ASU was spent at the Student Health/Wellness Center that shares space with our Lincoln Downtown Family YMCA.

Tammy worked closely with leadership at that branch to help co-exist in the shared space.

With her experience at Sun Devil Fitness for ASU, Tammy focused on keeping students engaged with their community at ASU. This could happen between fitness, sports, and recreation at ASU. Tammy also was a lead to educate students on making healthy and responsible decisions in their day-to-day life.
