United Career Institute Mt. Braddock is excited to introduce you to our Front Office Manager/Registrar, Tammy Kerner! Tammy started at United in August of 2020 and has quickly become a very valued member of our team!
Tammy’s background is in business administration and she has spent the majority of her career working in the administrative side of offices. “Most of my career I’ve worked in an office environment, working administrative roles. I worked at the Herald Standard Newspaper for 12 years. I managed the store accounts. I worked at BAE systems for 13 years. I was promoted to three different positions while employed there. I started at the front desk with administrative duties. I worked with the material team as their assistant. My last position I held there was in procurement.”
If you were to ask Tammy what she does in a day, the list would go on and on because her responsibilities are varied. Among other things, she is in charge of greeting and checking in students and guests, overseeing attendance submissions, and processing and sending student transcripts. She is also always willing to lend a helping hand for student events, fundraisers, or staff events. This variety keeps her motivated and challenged each day and is part of why she enjoys working at United. “I love variety, and this position offers changes to my everyday workload,” Tammy said.
Some of Tammy’s favorite parts of working at United include working with the staff and talking with the students each morning. She loves to see the students excel and grow! Tammy feels the same way about her passions outside of work. She is very involved with her church, specifically the music team. She is very motivated by her team. “I love watching them learn new music and grow in their talent,” she says.
Tammy’s family is very special to her. When asked what she is most proud of, Tammy said, “My son and daughter, and how they have exceeded in their jobs and how hard they work to achieve their goals.” While Tammy enjoys her work, she hopes to one day retire to spend time with her kids and two grandkids who call her BB.
It is clear that Tammy is passionate about her family and her music team. When asked to share something that others may not know about her, she said, “I love music. I’m a musician and worship leader at my church. I have two grandchildren. They call me BB. I have a passion for helping others when in need.” Tammy’s desire to help people is clear to anybody who interacts with her at United. She is always willing to jump in and help out whenever needed and is always available should a student need something, whether it be copies of something or just an encouraging word! United Career Institute is lucky to have her!
