Tammy Ponder

Tammy Ponder has worked in tax accounting with The Hechtman Group since 2022. She specializes in tax preparation, a challenging role as tax laws are detailed and constantly changing. It’s a role and a challenge she enjoys.

Originally from Kennesaw, GA, Tammy’s previous experience includes working as a tax accountant and assistant controller for different companies in the Georgia region. She obtained a master’s degree in accounting from Kennesaw State University.

Now a member of The Hechtman Group family, a company she describes as “welcoming, encouraging, and patient”, Tammy is focused on making clients feel comfortable in asking tax related questions. In addition to providing year-round tax guidance, she is also well-versed in helping with QuickBooks and payroll issues.

When not working on tax returns, Tammy enjoys being with family and telling funny, made-up stories to her grandchildren. A travel buff, England is her favorite destination for its rich history and pub food. A true Chicagoan, she loves deep dish pizza.
