Coordinating all aspects of community news through numerous columns, calendars, briefs and stories.
Tammy had the privilege of growing up in the mountains surrounding Durango and Silverton, and has learned to never take the area’s beauty for granted. She joined The Daily Sentinel in 1980, working in the circulation and accounting departments. After 5 ½ years at the Sentinel she and her family relocated to the South Bay area of Southern California and then the Salt Lake City valley. During her 13-year absence from the Sentinel she worked as a prep house painter, a day-care provider, a retail sales clerk and a Clairol hair color specialist — assisting callers with remedying haircoloring disasters. Tammy returned to the Sentinel accounting department in 1998, joined the newsroom in 1999, and was named the community news coordinator in 2004.
Tammy is married to Allen Gemaehlich, a sports writer at the Sentinel, and she has two grown sons. Free time will find the Gemaehlichs on their cruiser or mountain bikes, or enjoying the crack of the bat at Major League baseball stadiums throughout the country.
