While living there, Tammy worked at a local pet store and for Rosemount Inc. Instruments. In 2007, Tammy moved back to the Marshall area and was a past member of Assemblies of God Church.

She had a love for cars and was a member of the Shades of the Past Car Club. Every June, Tammy would show her 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 XL, which was her pride and joy.
