The Beginning…  Tammie's first degree is in Computer Science and Mathematics at Central Missouri State University. While completing this degree, she chose to spend a year in Edinburgh, Scotland, at Napier University. It was there that she learned about user centered design. After her year abroad, she returned to the US to complete her bachelor’s degree. However, she knew that this would not be her final career. After working 9 months as a developer in Kansas City, she went back to the UK to complete her MSc in Human Centered Computer Systems at the University of Sussex.

The usability bug bites… She never looked back. she loves working with users and designing software that makes their lives happier/easier. One of most memorable interview quotes came from a doctor she was interviewing. He said her design would “help save lives.” Tammie has six years of experience as a usability engineer and have worked with a variety of users, including the following:
