Apart from being a Resilience First Aid Instructor and Resilience Coach, she is also a Principal Master Instructor of Mental Health First Aid, Alternatives to Suicide facilitator, an international best-selling author, international speaker and Australasian Award winner.

Tammie has a lived experience of her own mental health struggles, is a domestic abuse survivor and has supported numerous family members, friends and colleagues experiencing psychological distress. She is driven by a desire to ensure prevention, early intervention and support are available when people need it most to enable them to rise up from the ashes of adversity, remain connected and live full and productive lives.
