Tammy Derrigan, a strategy-driven student of human behavior, fuses traditional and alternative approaches to communicating complex concepts. Transforming big ideas into reality has been an overarching theme throughout her career – first in film production, then in fundraising for non-profits, and – since 2006 – as an experiential marketer. Derrigan studies cultural and social trends and their impact on human attitudes, behavior and perceptions, then uses them to identify strategic solutions. Her non-profit experience includes nine years of fundraising success at Washington University, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and Missouri Botanical Garden, plus service as St. Louis Center for Hearing and Speech board president and Junior League board member and lobbyist.
Derrigan is a program director at The Academy of Racing Science. She holds a BA and MA in media communications from Webster University.
