We have our very first AmeriCorps Vista position filled by Tammy Moyer! Get to know her here:
“My name is Tammy Moyer. I was born in Marinette and graduated with honors from Menominee High School, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, and the University of Bridgeport. I am currently finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing Management.
My husband and I decided to move back to Wisconsin to be closer to family and my son, who plans to attend the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay to become a high school history teacher.
I was born a Green Bay Packer fan, enjoy playing darts and traveling. Something no one knows about me is that I have been to all 50 states, 49 of them with my son. Unfortunately, Florida escaped him due to Covid-19.
For the next year, I’m an AmeriCorps Volunteer in service to America (VISTA) serving with Newcap, Inc., a Community Action Agency with twenty-eight programs supporting ten counties in Northeast Wisconsin. Newcap’s mission is to move people from poverty to opportunities and economic security and improve communities. My role this year is to create a volunteer network to further Newcap’s mission and engage the communities in which they support.
The reason I wanted to head this project is because through all of my travels, Northeast Wisconsin is where I am from. I wanted the opportunity to make a difference and give back to the communities I grew up in and this was my opportunity to do just that!”
