In September 2019 the unexpected door of opportunity opened wide when she accepted the position to be a hospice chaplain in Oregon. Although she grew up in the Evangelical church, Tammy has now left behind her ties to Christianity and currently identifies as Agnostic Humanist. She likes to say that she is more drawn to the human spirit than the holy spirit. Warmly embracing her unknowingness which in turn allows others to do the same.
