Just Be Yourself
When Matthew McConaughey published his book, "Greenlights," UST Ed.D Alumna, Tammy Smithers, was surprised to find herself within its pages. The lesson learned: be yourself because you never know who is watching and what impact it may have on them. Guest host Bridget Richardson discusses with Tammy how, by being herself, Smithers has had a life of firsts, growth and opportunities and has chosen to make it a life of service.
Tammy Smithers graduated in May 2020 with a Doctorate of Education in Ethical Leadership and is an adjunct professor in the School of Education and Human Services at University of St. Thomas-Houston. She teaches a course on diversity/equity and leadership at UST. She is also a visiting scholar at Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Leadership, Equity and Justice at Rutgers University. She also joined Bridge Philanthropic Consulting, LLC as an Executive Consultant specializing in social justice, diversity, equity, inclusion/belongingness.
