Tammie was born in Birmingham, Alabama on November 3 and grew up in the city of Pelham.

Lisa ended up unbeknownst to Tammie, being the daughter of the owner of Elan/Elite Casablanca, one of the top modeling and acting schools in the 1980’s and still is today. The CEO/Director, Karen Allen, was so happy that her daughter Lisa was treated so well and made to feel welcome on her first day, when most children come home unhappy to be uprooted and placed in a new environment, that she contacted Tammie’s mother and offered Tammie classes in everything they taught, Tammie accepted. Tammie completed runway/still modeling, makeup application (MUA) and multiple acting training courses at Elan/Elite and Casablanca for six years in her teens and she was represented by them with Karen as her agent.

If I could work with someone I admire, there are so many people that I admire for their vast workings and celebrities in the industry that I would love to work with because I feel one can never stop learning, and growing through experience is the best method in my opinion. I’d like to work with Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Tyler Perry, Ron Howard, Greta Gerwig, Nicole Kidman, Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lopez and get the business advice of Elon Musk. Success means achieving a goal that you set for yourself that is higher than the one you had the day before and giving back more than you receive.
