Tammy Barringer, mother of EHS sophomore Lizzie and Davis, a middle school student at Annunciation Orthodox School, met her husband, David, in Atlanta, where she worked as a pharmacist. Within a couple of years, David's firm moved to Houston, so Tammy transferred with her company and was promoted to pharmacy recruiting manager and then pharmacy district manager. In 2004, David's company offered them an overseas opportunity. With an infant and a toddler in tow, they moved to London for almost five years. Fully embracing the international experience, she did not hesitate to say "yes" to a move to Bahrain in the Middle East, where they lived for over three years following London.
Throughout the school years, abroad and stateside, Tammy has volunteered on gala committees, served as class mom, team mom, advisory mom, and as Parent Teacher Organization officer. She has also served as a volunteer for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and Big Brothers Big Sisters and numerous municipal initiatives.
After enjoying five years of repatriation, Tammy is pursuing her master’s in Pharmacy Health Informatics to once again tackle the health care issues that plague the nation. In her spare time, she enjoys attending World Affairs Council lectures, reading, skiing, and relaxing on the beach.
