About Tammera: At the age of 16 years old, Tammera Holmes was introduced to the world of Aviation by the Tuskegee Airmen Inc., (TAI) Young Eagles Program sponsored by the Chicago DODO Chapter. That day she took her first flight and it was a life-changing experience for her. She decided then to pursue a career in Aviation.
Tammera graduated from Proviso East High School (Maywood, IL) and enrolled at Southern Illinois University to major in Aviation Flight/Management and Spanish. After only 4 weeks of flight training, she was one of the first in her class of over 200 students to solo. She graduated from SIU having completed both the Spanish and Aviation Programs in only four and a half years. In 2001, she began her professional aviation career by assuming employment with Landrum & Brown, one of the nation's leading Aviation Consulting Firms. As first a Facilities and Operations Analyst, then an Environmental Consultant, she provided a wide variety of planning services for both large and small air carrier airports.

She has also worked on environmental mitigation research for OMP for wetlands, noise abatement, energy supply, natural resources, hazardous materials, and emissions. In her defining role at Landrum & Brown, Ms. Holmes acted as Business Manager and Project Administrator for Landrum & Brown's Chicago office.
