Tammy Spence

Story Ambassadors Program Assistant and Immigrant Storytelling Program Co-coordinator

Tammy holds a PhD in Neuroscience from Wake Forest University and embraces her nerdiness when she says, “I love storytelling because it’s good for the brain!” But she also wholeheartedly points out that stories connect us on a more spiritual level, allowing us to carry one another inside. After working for years at a cutting-edge neurotechnology company, she took a class at Capital Storytelling and, as she puts it, “rediscovered her spark.” She was a 2022 Story Ambassador and now helps lead our storytelling workshops. She believes in the life-changing power of listening and telling stories.
