    Mrs. Wayne County Michigan, Tammy Turner -Maddox to Compete for Title of Mrs. Michigan


    Tammy Turner-Maddox was awarded the title Mrs. Wayne County, Michigan but didn't stop there. She is moving on to compete in the Mrs. Michigan Pageant on Saturday, March 29,2014, in Grand Rapids, MI. The Detroit Native recently shared her rags to riches story as a contributing author in the recently released book "Soul of a Winner."
    Tammy is a recruiter, author, public speaker and trainer. She is the owner and CEO of Kapstone Training Services and Kapstone Publishing. Tammy is also an engineering recruiter with Diversified Services.


    The timing couldn’t be better; the Detroit native recently shared her rags to riches story as a contributing author to the recently released book, The Soul of a Winner. This marks her third published book since 2010. Tammy has a plethora of accomplishments including being a well-sought nationwide speaker.

    After serving for over six years in the field of public accounting and having worked at major firms including; Arthur Andersen and Deloitte & Touche, Tammy realized her true passion was in the field of human resources. Hence, Tammy worked as a recruiter for Robert Half Finance & Accounting and a senior recruiter for Quicken Loans/Rock Financial. In 2004, Tammy traveled to Cambodia where she worked as a recruiting consultant for UNICEF.


    Tammy’s story over the last five years has been quite intriguing. She met and fell in love with her husband, Lance Maddox, whom she met on Facebook. The couple shared their courtship with their online friends leading to marriage. They continue to express their love and adoration as a modern day love story over the social media site with friends and onlookers witnessing the power of real love. Becoming a delegate for the Mrs. Michigan America Pageant is only befitting for Mrs. Maddox as she exemplifies the role model of wife, entrepreneur, community advocate and mother, a continuous juggling act which she handles with poise and grace. And she believes that "women can have both family and career while living out their dreams without feeling guilty. It’s all about proper planning and balance,”


    The pageant also has an internet winner based on likes of the contestants photos. Tammy can be voted for online at the following link. Voting ends on March 27th at 6pm.
