Tammy’s approach to care looks at the whole person. She tries her best to help improve their dysfunction to make their life enjoyable and more manageable. She treats a wide range of diagnoses through inpatient and outpatient services, swing bed, and homecare. Tammy is also a certified lymphedema therapist. She has special interests in treating patients with vision dysfunction, post-concussion, and cognitive impairment.
Tammy grew up on a farm in Andover, SD. She went to school at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul for her undergraduate degree and Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, UT, for her Doctorate. She decided to become an occupational therapist because she would go to therapy sessions with her niece, who was born with down syndrome, and loved to help with her at-home program.
Tammy has been at Glacial Ridge Health System since 2014 and an occupational therapist for over twenty years. She appreciates the culture at GRHS and the variety of medical staff and services provided for a rural health system.
Tammy’s husband, Michael, is a physical therapist at GRHS as well. They have twin school-age boys who enjoy all sports. Tammy and Michael also have three older children and two granddaughters. Tammy likes to cook, bake, garden, and spend time at the lake.
