Celebrating Women in Technology
Vice President of Operations
In honor of Women's History Month, we would like to acknowledge some of the amazing women at Stratix across various departments and all that they do. Without these women, our company would not be the same. We took some time to speak with them to understand how their past experiences molded them into strong females in the industry. This spotlight shines directly on Tammy Harley, Vice President of Operations. With over 20 years of experience in technology, Tammy has become an effective leader, whose intention is to put the customer experience first, while investing time into the development of her team to explore and cultivate their talents.
How long have you been at Stratix, and what does your role entail?
What do you like about working at Stratix?
Who is your favorite woman in history and why?
What words of wisdom did your aunts/grandmother or mother give you?
What did you want to be when you grew up and why?
In my own career, my interests and priorities have morphed and shifted over time. We’re all professional works in progress, and I would rather shift the focus from a specific job to the kind of role model that we can strive to be. Someone who has integrity, compassion, and is organized can be any number of things.
Which of the Stratix Core Values do you identify with the most and why?
Knowing what you know today, what is something you would tell your younger self before you started your career?
Have courage and don’t be afraid to fail, just learn from every bump in the road so you make better mistakes next time. That is where you learn the most! It is very important to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and to not feel expected to have all of the answers. It’s not that everybody knows everything, it’s that people are in different places in their careers and have already been where you are now.
