Your Presenter: 

Tammy Bailey has 26 years of experience as a payroll professional, with particular interest in the manufacturing industry. Originally thrust into the role she found she had a knack and a love for payroll processing. In an effort to continue growing her expertise she has taken various courses at PCC and attended conferences offered by the APA. Tammy is now engaged in course work for her CPP certification. She is currently the Payroll Manager for Erickson Inc. and has been with the company for over a year.
Her true passion has always been helping people. By offering empathy and direction she has found a way to incorporate this passion into her work. Educating and empowering employees and managers to understand their compensation as well as the how and why of timekeeping and payroll processing has become a personal mission. Tammy has found that her ability to build bridges and close the gap between Managers and Employees improves the overall culture in her workplace.
Tammy lives and works in Portland, Or where and shares a loving home with 15 year old grandson, T.J., and a finicky feline, Nala.

Tammy is our own Portland Metro Payroll Association Secretary!
