With her father being involved in the YAL since she was a young girl, Tammy-Rae has grown up with an understanding of the YAL, but not really what it did. It wasn’t until 2013 when she came to help Jan in the office that Tammy-Rae really grew to have an understanding of the unique organisation that the YAL is.
Before coming to the YAL Tammy-Rae had been involved in many different management roles, from books with small business to a chain of timber flooring stores. With a background in Education, Youth Work and business she feels well placed to help steer the YAL into the future. While the corporate management world is very different from the non-for-profit world, she has enjoyed the more personal nature of the not-for-profit organisation.
With her husband Damien at her side, together they are raising two daughters who have become involved in all that the YAL do.
Tammy-Rae considers the YAL to be an amazing organisation with the power to make a real difference in the lives of young people throughout Australia. She is proud to be involved and can’t wait to see what the future brings.
