National Co-Director

Education: Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with an emphasis in Actuarial Science, Doane University; Masters of Business Administration, Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern University

Occupation: I work for Deloitte Consulting. A healthcare actuary by background, I currently help federal and state governments solve their most complex financial and policy challenges related to the US healthcare system.

Family: My husband, Griffin, and I are happily living in New York and enjoying our energetic, fun-loving daughters, Annabelle and Bernadette.  And of course, no family is complete without the furry members: we have twin cats, Laverne and Shirley.

Influences: My husband, who is always loving, supportive, and ever caring; my mother, who taught me how to love and care for others; and my Church community, who taught me how to share God’s love with others through my gifts.

Favorite CK Memory: The auction we hosted each year at Doane to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The entire community would participate. We hosted it in the cafeteria over dinner, so it was always a lively crowd of students bidding on items that faculty, staff, and local businesses donated. It’s a heartwarming (and fun!) event that I’ll always remember fondly.

Reason for joining the Board: From the time I was first exposed to Cardinal Key, I was impressed with the organization’s core values and how diligently everyone worked to uphold the mission. This is what first inspired me to become active in the organization and it is keeps me actively involved to this day. I joined the Doane Cardinal Key Chapter in the Spring of 2004. During my time at Doane, I served as chapter Vice President and President. I was fortunate enough to be the Doane representative at the National Cardinal Key Convention in 2005 where I was elected National Vice President. After which, I served as a National Advisor on the Board of Directors until I was elected National Co-Director during the 2009 National Cardinal Key Convention in Atlanta.

Favorite Quotation: I have many, so I’ll just share the one that stands out in my mind at the moment: Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere else, Albert Einstein

Favorite Vacation: My favorite vacation would have to be the trip Griffin and I took to Africa with a number of other Doane alums (including his parents!). A Doane professor led the trip and she has spent a fair amount of time in this area, so we were really able to explore the local area in more of a non-tourist capacity. Plus, the safaris were absolutely amazing!

 

Devin W. Lammy, Truman ‘03 
National Co-Director

Education: Bachelor of Science in Health Education, Truman State University; Masters of Education in Health Education & Promotion, University of Missouri

Family: My husband and I recently celebrated 15 amazing, difficult, beautiful, years of marriage. We have 4 fantastically wild and wonderful children, three of whom are medically complicated. They keep us busy, and our lives full of laughter.

Occupation: Domestic Engineer; Volunteer. Previously: Health Promotion Specialist with emphases in Sleep Hygiene and Tobacco Harm Reduction

Influences: My husband, parents, and grandparents, especially my grandmothers; the ladies of Freezer Club; my Truman CK sisters; Elyse Fitzpatrick; Ginger Plowman; Senora Ferguson; The Crossing Church in Columbia, Missouri.

Favorite CK Memory: As a student: hacking through 1000 Hills State Park with machetes and Blue Keys to clear bike trails, and spending hours laughing and sharing at our Retreats. As a board member: watching a fire for improving and challenging their chapters ignite in the hearts and imaginations of delegates at each National Conference…also the night of the “indoor waterfall” at the 2011 National Conference.

Reason for joining the Board: Joining Cardinal Key at University changed my life for the better, for good. I wanted to support Cardinal Key at a National Level and to help local chapters impact their schools and communities. After serving as National President, I remained on the Board of Directors until Amanda and I were appointed National Co-Directors at the 2009 National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

Favorite Quotations: 

  • Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile. Albert Einstein.

  • When you have endured tragedy, the things that seemed so important to the maintenance of a way of life do not have the same significance. Jacqueline Winspear

Epic Moments: Marrying my husband; holding our children for the first time; seeing my son recover from open heart surgery; watching our 26 week old baby fight to live in the NICU; watching my husband receive his Ph.D.; seeing my grandparents love their spouses; realizing that my parents were both human and amazing; standing on the beach as storm comes in off the ocean.

Sayers, The Silmarillion, J.R.R. Tolkien; Murder on the Orient Express, Agatha Christie; Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, Susanna Clarke; The Harry Potter Series, J.K.
