Though it is a known fact that Tammy Peterson started her career off as a massage therapist, it is not clear if she had her own business or if she was working as an employee.
Tammy has been a foster mother to a lot of children over the years. When she turned 30, she greatly disliked seeing children abandoned in orphanages with no family in sight to adopt them. Most of these children without the loving support of a good home to grow up in, end up destitute, drug addicts and even prostitutes, so she decided to do something about it. She would go to orphanages, and adopt children who she brings home with her.
She provides the right atmosphere for these kids to grow up in, she feeds and clothes them, gives them education till they attain a certain age, where they can decide to either launch out on their own or return back to the orphanages. Peterson has been doing this for more than 20 years now, and she has helped to give a new lease of life to so many of these children. Tammy has this firm belief that everyone, regardless of whatever mess may be going on in their lives, deserves a good home to come back to every night.
