Tammy McKenzie

Talent Acquistion Specialist

What are your main roles / responsibilities? 

I assist one of our premier clients with onsite staffing needs.

What is your background? Education, experience, etc.

I have a diverse background comprised of more than 15 years of HR and Recruitment experience primarily in the healthcare sector and 10 years of experience in Mental Health and Workforce Development.

What’s your favorite part about being part of the Placers team?

The culture of learning.

What is your favorite quote?

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper. He should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all hosts of heaven and earth pause to say; Here lives a great sweeper who did his job well.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

What are your hobbies/passions?

Horses – I’m an avid trail rider! I enjoy spending time with my horses, dogs, goats, cats, and my Bearded Dragon, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and hiking. Additionally, I’m an advocate for individuals suffering from mental illness and I’m committed to changing the fallacy and assumptions that are so often made about this horrific disease.

What is a personal goal?

To hike the entire Appalachian Trail and to learn a new equestrian sport – Western Dressage!
