Meet Tammi Brooks

August 29, 2011 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Tammi Brooks grew up in Tallahassee, FL as an athlete and “total tomboy.”  Her outdoor lifestyle gave her a rich appreciation for the environment. While attending the University of Florida in Gainesville, Tammi participated in as many environmentally related college groups as she could find.

Tammi remained in Gainesville after graduation and started a highly successful newspaper.  As an editor and fiction writer, she became involved with Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, rising to managing editor. She now continues her career track in editing at Duke University.

Tammi’s commitment to her community and involvement in a rehabilitation organization called Threshold Clubhouse led her to meet Marya McNeish, who later became the Development and Operations Director of Clean Energy Durham.

Tammi and her husband became early supporters of Clean Energy Durham and were inspired to become more involved after they bought an older home in Durham that used a lot of energy.  Her husband is now a committed neighborhood resource and volunteer. They also became Founders of the 2030 Society, which supports the City and County goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the county by 30% by the year 2030.

With four children and the looming specter of multiple college tuitions, Tammi has recently entered the professional world of real estate. As a Realtor with Marie Austin, Tammi has noted an ever growing concern on the part of clients for environmental issues. Her NC Association of Realtors green certification allows her to be an important environmental resource for her clients.

Tammi’s experience traveling the world rock climbing, camping, and playing Ultimate Frisbee has given her a unique global environmental perspective that has only deepened her commitment to preservation, energy efficiency and sustainability.
