Military Nurse by Night, Make-A-Wish Volunteer by Day
If you talk to Tammy McMannon for just a few minutes, you’ll hear compassion in her voice. She’s been a nurse in the military for nine years, and she often works night shifts, caring for adult patients in the ICU.
With a job like that, you’d think that Tammy might use her spare time to sleep.
But Tammy’s compassion knows no bounds. She works exclusively with adults doing her job as a nurse, so she’s determined to give back to local children in her spare time. She says, “Volunteering at Make-A-Wish gives me the interaction with children that I don’t have in my career.”
