Tammy Hooker makes our guests comfortable having an open conversation, and to do that she draws on 26 years of experience as an Human Resources and Organizational Development professional.
A North Texas resident for 29 years, she arrived in Plano in 2007. She is a graduate of Leadership Plano; that’s where she and Mary Jacobs met and began their collaboration. Tammy served on the team that brought TEDxPlano to our city as Marketing Chair and Co-Host.
She is driven to share Plano stories that move listeners into a deeper understanding of the people shaping our culture and has a singular purpose to forge an entertaining, creative outlet for characters to tell their stories, in their own distinctive voices.
Professionally, she works part-time for Dallas-based Imaginuity Interactive, and does freelance work in website development, sound editing, copy writing and graphic design (including for Plano Podcast) in North Texas. She is a member of the Plano Metro Rotary, and is actively involved in education-related community work. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas. Her son is a Sophomore at TCU, despite her best efforts to make him a Razorback.
Tammy spends her free time shouting at the TV while watching politics on CNN. She has an eminently patient husband and a softball-playing daughter in Plano ISD.
