Can you tell us a little about yourself and what experience you bring to the Public Relations / New Media intern position?
Tammy: I’m a work at home mom to 2 daughters, Kiersten (10) and Rebecca (6). I’ve been married to my husband Dan for 10 years. I’ve worked in various positions that all revolved around marketing, advertising and promotions. Currently I’m a virtual assistant, mostly working with social media (blogging, podcasting, audio/video) as well as serving as the Military District of Washington DC installation ambassador for Military.com.
Do you have any ties to the military?
Tammy: I come from a big military family where my grandfather and father both were in the Army. Currently my husband (SGT Munson, US Army), husband’s brother and sister in law, and many friends are serving in the Military.
What social networks are you on and how can people find you to connect with you?
Are you a podcaster or blogger and if so, where can people read more about what you’re up to?

What motivated you to sign up for the Public Relations / New Media intern position?
Tammy: I wanted to learn more about public relations as well as enhance my skills in new media and social networking. I’ve been following Trish on Twitter as @MailOurMilitary for some time and though it was a great service and site. I also have a very big place in my heart for all military, especially now as the wife of an active duty solider.
What would you like to learn during your time at eMail Our Military?
Tammy: I certainly want to enhance my skills by learning about new technologies in New Media and gather a great deal of knowledge in the area of Public Relations. I know this intern position with eMail Our Military will continue to grow my skills and expertise in New Media/Public Relations.
Are there any areas of Public Relations and Social/New Media that you’re especially interested in?
Tammy: I think it would be really exciting to work with professionals in radio and television as well as celebrities. That's an area I haven’t really explored and I would absolutely love it!
Thanks Tammy for taking some time with us today. Welcome onboard and thanks for all you do for our military.
