Hi! My name is Tammy McLeod, and I am on the staff of an international, inter-denominational Christian organization called Cru. I serve as an advisor to both Christian Impact and its athletic ministry, Athletes in Action. I work very closely with my husband, Pat, who is also a Harvard Chaplain. In addition, I serve as the Director of College Ministry for Park Street Church in downtown Boston. See areas of special interest above.

During college, I began a relationship with Jesus. This changed the trajectory of my life. Consequently, I have spent the last four decades inviting students, faculty, administrators, and coaches to experience the forgiveness, freedom, joy, hope, love, and life found in a relationship with Christ.

I spent two years at the International School of Theology doing M.A. work in Pastoral Studies with a counseling emphasis and graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with an M.A. in Spiritual Formation.

Spiritual formation is a passion of mine. I enjoy helping others make space in their lives to become more attentive to how God is working in their lives. I focus on the spiritual disciplines of meditation on Scripture, prayer, reflection, and Sabbath-keeping. These practices have been central in the rhythm of my own spiritual journey, and I enjoy helping others build healthy life rhythms.

Over a decade ago, our sixteen-year-old son had a severe traumatic brain injury playing football and instantly became severely disabled for life. I have dealt with a lot of loss and grief but have experienced the nearness of God in these circumstances. I am available to listen to students and faculty talk about suffering, loss, and grief. I also enjoy helping others work through relational issues and grow in emotional maturity.
