Tammy Suren - Secretary/Treasurer
Tammy began working for Ray Smithers & Jerry Trowbridge in 1990 at Touch-Map® Systems in Jensen Beach as our bookkeeper. As our other companies evolved:
Flying Pig Ranch Studios
The Autism Channel®
and soon the Alzheimers Channel
She has always been reliable, honest and best of all knowledgeable and loyal.
After the hurricane of 2004 (Francis) and the total destruction of our offices we moved south, first to Jupiter than to our current location. Tammy stayed at her home in Port Saint Lucie and works There to this day.
Working with the same person (who handles your money) for 29 years probably says it all.
