Tammy moved to VA from WV in 2000 and now lives in Fluvanna County with her husband Ryan and their twins Abigail & Caleb.
Tammy has seen both sides of the need and importance for this waiver and services for elderly and disabled: in providing care for her aging father, and in helping a friend with many community activities for special needs children. Tammy came to Moms in Motion in 2013 through that same friend who was a manager with Moms and whose son was using the waiver. Tammy started as an admin assistant to this manager and as the company grew, merged into an growing Admin team. In 2017 Tammy was promoted to Team Lead on the CCC Plus Admin team and continues to lead that amazing team. She loves to problem solve and help ensure that services are in place for the people the company serves!
In her spare time, enjoys spending time with her family and friends, photography, and reading, and taking their boat on the lake.
For the past several years Christen has experienced, through her own grandmother, the daily struggles presented when caring for someone with a disability, as her grandmother cares for her disabled brother. Christen's mother, Tracey, has spent much of her time helping her grandmother navigate through all of the obstacles faced.
In the Fall of 2018, Christen became licensed as an Accident and Health Insurance Agent. Through this experience, she witnessed how the process of enrolling individuals and families into health care plans caused many people to experience difficulties in receiving the care they needed. The purpose Christen felt in being able to assist those individuals stuck with her. She wants to build her understanding of the world of disabilities, and in turn help other families to receive the assistance they need, so that they can live the best lives possible.

Tamatha and her husband were welcomed into the “world of disability” when their third child was born with a rare genetic mutation. As a result, he remains in a newborn mental state with no physical control. Only given two to four years to live, he has now lived years beyond that estimate. Tamatha and her husband are absolutely blessed to have him in the family, but the impact has been tremendous. Each family member has had to make lifestyle changes as a result. Through it all, Tamatha has worked hard to help her family find and maintain “a new normal.”
This everyday experience has given Tamatha the ability to help extended family and friends when they have faced the disability of a loved one. She has had the opportunity to share her experiences and provide comfort and compassion throughout her community. Tamatha is excited to be working for Moms In Motion. She hopes to help many others who are facing a disability to thrive as they find their own “new normal.”
