Tami Gamble is the Founder and CEO of Girly Shop Teacher, LLC and Girly Shop Teacher Foundation with the combined mission to “Ignite a spirit to BUILD in youth and reframe the need, value, and inclusion of construction education.” As an ambassador to the building trades, she's ushering in the next generation of builders into the construction industry. Tami curates and hosts innovative programs designed to introduce and inspire youth in the construction crafts.

The Girly Shop Teacher captivates audiences with her energetic, comedic spirit and never quit attitude.

Tami's first heartthrob moment in construction came at the age of six, when she was helping her dad set and pour cement steps. This zany mother of three sons is a Howard University graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, a Certified Texas Education Agency Teacher, NCCER Certified Trades Instructor and OSHA certified. She has appeared on the cover of Southwest Now Magazine January 2019 and was named Power Up Inc. Woman in Construction May 2018.
