Home-Grown Staff: From Senior Recreation Specialist to Hospitality and Sales Assistant

The City of Southlake and the Community Services Department emphasize internal movement and staff development. When opportunities become available, we love filling them with our world-class staff.

Tammie Garcia began working for the City in early April as the Senior Recreation Specialist at the Senior Activity Center. In her short time with the Department, she quickly made a great impression by providing world-class service to our senior members. When the Hospitality and Sales Assistant position became available in Legends Hall, we knew Tammie would be the perfect fit.

Let’s get to know her a little bit better.

What drew you to a career in local government?
My daughter, DeLaney, drew me into local government. She has worked for the City of Southlake for four years, and during that time, she suggested job opportunities to me. I decided to apply and was very excited about being offered the position at Legends Hall.

What are you most excited about in your new position?
I am excited about the people I work with and the opportunities for a new challenge. Most of all, I am excited about helping families create memories and milestones every day.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to read and try new restaurants. I enjoy being with my husband and children, and we love to travel!

What’s something every Legends Hall visitor should know?
Anyone walking into Legends Hall should know that our entire team is here to answer any questions regarding the Senior Center, book an event, or give directions!

If you find yourself near Legends Hall,  say hello to Tammie! Congratulations on your new position! We’re so happy to keep you on the team.
