“I’m proud to see the strong support for this important confirmation. Tammy, who currently serves as a health care investigator on the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, has always been an advocate for veterans and whistleblowers and an important part of my team. She has shown a steadfast commitment to our veterans through her relentless investigative work for the past 3 years. While we will miss her greatly, I know that she is the right choice for this leadership role at VA.”
