Tammy Hannah — OTRL, CBIS
President & CEO
Hello, my name is Tammy Hannah. I have been with Origami since May of 2000 when I completed my final clinical rotation as an Occupational Therapy Intern from Saginaw Valley State University. What was planned as a short term clinical rotation soon became a long term career path as I enthusiastically accepted a position as Origami’s first full time therapist in July of 2000. Since my arrival, I have served as the Clinical Team facilitator (2001-2003), progressed to co-Manager of the Rehabilitation Care Unit (2003), and then served as co-Executive Director/Director of Rehabilitation Services (2004-2014). For me, Origami has always been home away from home where people are welcoming, the environment is enriching, and outcomes are exemplary. I am inspired daily by the individuals we serve and enjoy evolving alongside the Origami team.

Jennifer Pascoe — BS, CBIS
Director of Operations
Hi, Jenn Pascoe here. My career working with individuals with brain injury began in 2001 while attending Grand Valley State University (Go Lakers!). Little did I know at that time that my work as a direct care staff member would have such a profound impact on my future. My career at Origami began in 2006 as a member of the Admissions team. I feel so fortunate to have hired into an organization early in my career that values professional growth. It is this culture that has provided me continuous opportunities to learn various aspects of the organization and advance to my current role of Business Office Manager. I continue to be inspired daily by the clients we serve and feel blessed to be on a team that is part of the journey to recovery.
