Background and Experience

Good Day! My name is Tammie Pyne. I would like to give you a bit of my background. After attending the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida, I enlisted in the United States Air Force. During my 20-year enlistment, I served in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan in operational, management and leadership positions. Also, in my military career time, I was able to complete four degrees in business and management, as well as complete an executive level management certification. Fortunately, during my military tenure, I also was able to instruct and teach leadership and management courses, to include John C. Maxwell’s 360 Degrees of Leadership.

During my time working in government, my professional emphasis was in human resource management, training and development. After my military career, I worked as a Pierce College academic (curriculum) advisor and then transitioned as a Business and Management professor.

I am currently a small business owner of an online ecommerce store: Visionz Design.
