A passion for customer service is what drives Tammy, as she manages the tour director department at BRT. A ten-year veteran of the Walt Disney World Company and co-owner of a customer service training/mystery shopping company, she joined BRT to recruit and hire the perfect talent to lead tours and wow clients. For Tammy, the best part of her job is building lasting relationships with tour directors — she works hard to make sure they feel like they’re part of the BRT family, knowing that these relationships lay the foundation for amazing experiences for clients and their students.

My favorite travel memory
My favorite travel memory is the first time I visited Walt Disney World as a college student. That visit gave me the inspiration to make working at Walt Disney World a reality and a career for ten years. This experience was the basis for building upon my innate passion for providing exceptional service to clients and co-workers alike.
My hobbies and pastimes
When I am not working my “real” job, I enjoy baking. I love making anything sweet and making that a special part of many types of celebrations — birthdays, weddings, baby showers, school parties, etc. When I’m not in the kitchen, during the summer, my family and I spend as much time as possible outdoors, enjoying lake living. My two boys love to fish, swim, wakeboard, etc. I just love watching them grow up on water — it is such a fun childhood for them!
My favorite travel destination
My husband and I love to cruise. I especially like traveling to warm destinations, as it is nice to escape the chilly temps of Michigan every once in a while.
The personal touches that BRT provides. Your company gets to know the people they work with. I have never felt like a "number" with BRT.
Class Trip, 2018 DC tour
Columbia Central Junior High School
I appreciated the flexibility Bob Rogers showed us with the billing and various payments we had to make. We thought we were adding more and ended up not but you were great about giving us extra time to work out what we needed to on our end.

BRT is always on top of all details. Even when something has slipped through the cracks, changed, or something unexpected comes up, BRT is flexible enough to make the changes needed to make everything right. We have always been so well taken care of and the personal attention is what makes your company special.

The quality of service that you provided us with was second to none. The organization and communication were exceptional and we always felt we were in “the loop” on things both before and during the trip.
Band, ‘17-18 Orlando Tour
Amos Alonzo Stagg High School
BRT hands down has been the absolute best travel company I have worked with in my 18 years in education. My interactions with BRT have always been so much more than just traveling from one destination to another...the focus has always been on people and providing them with experiences of a lifetime.
