“We could not have asked for a more perfect candidate to oversee this next chapter in our organization,” said Sheryl Garst, The 712 Initiative’s CEO, in a press release. “Tammie has been on the ground floor previously building up housing programs to lift up underserved families and neighborhoods. We are so fortunate she has joined our team to build up a team of contractors and make an impact in Council Bluffs.”
Before this position, Dodge spent the past nine years as the director of construction and volunteer services at Habitat for Humanity of Omaha. She also previously worked as project manager for Act!vate Omaha and Habitat Omaha.
Dodge has more than 20 years of experience in construction and project management, leading herself to The 712 Initiative in February. She has a bachelor degree in community health education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Dodge is busy at work on The 712 Initiative’s Housing Revitalization Program. She is overseeing the work on five active project sites with homes slated to hit the market this summer.
