Meet Independent Financial Service’s Communications Specialist, Tammi Shirar-Friskney. Tammi is yet another employee who worked with Jeannie and Jodi at INVEST Financial prior to the formation of Independent Financial Services. Tammi has been with us since 2006 and has over 30 years of experience in the financial services industry. We like to call her our Jill of all trades! She handles many tasks from creating newsletters for our website’s learning center to preparing reports for client meetings. Up until this summer, Tammi was known as a “behind the scenes” employee and did most of her work from home. Today, she works part-time out of the Land O’ Lakes office. When calling our office, you may speak to Tammi regarding scheduling appointments or initiating distributions.
When Tammi is not devoting her time to our clients, she enjoys living an active lifestyle and playing tennis. She was born and raised in Florida, and is an avid Florida Gators fan. She has one pet, a long-haired dachshund named Lilly. Lilly is referred to as the “Queen Bee” in the Friskney household! We’ve all heard many stories about people meeting their spouses online or at social gatherings. Well, a fun fact about Tammi is she actually met her husband at jury duty! A great thing came out of that dreadful time and they are now “sentenced to life” with each other and their two sons. Of course, we mean that figuratively!
Tammi’s favorite quote is “Progress, not perfection.”
