Tammy Foreman, Realtor

tammy-foreman-picTammy Foreman and her husband Mike were foster parent for 11 years and adopted 4 children.  Not long after resigning as foster parents, Tammy was approached by a longtime friend, Jody Schutz, about starting a CASA program in our communities.  Being a foster parent she already knew the importance of CASA and was excited to help.  Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Jody and others, CASA for Kids was formed in 2006.  Tammy served on the Board as Vice President for the first year and Board Chair for 6 years.  She and her husband have been regular contributors to CASA for Kids and are willing to help in any capacity.  When asked to rejoin the Board in 2012 Tammy wholeheartedly accepted.  Professionally, Tammy has been a successful fulltime Realtor at Hodde Real Estate Company in Brenham for 15 years.  She and her family live on their ranch in Brenham enjoying their horses, ATVs, swimming and boating.  They also own a home in New Hampshire where they enjoy the cooler weather during the summer, snow in the winter and the beautiful changing seasons.  Tammy is very excited about the future of CASA for Kids and is glad to be a part of it!
