Tammy Shaklee

President/Founder/Certified Matchmaker
H4M Matchmaking

A trailblazing straight ally, Tammy is “The Gay & Lesbian Matchmaker.” In 2012, she researched, designed, and founded H4M Matchmaking, a private, offline, and personal matchmaking service designed exclusively for LGBT professionals. Now serving gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients coast-to-coast, H4M is leading a movement of more traditional introductions, courting and dating for today’s modern singles. Tammy believes the pro-equality movement invited straight allies to join in support, as she “leads with love.” Happily married to her husband, whom she met through a matchmaker, Tammy hosts a monthly salon of media-savvy women, bloggers, and mentors, is (still) working on her first book, and has filmed a “sizzle reel” for an unscripted reality show on tolerance and inclusion. Prior, she was a broadcast journalist, then district director for a Texas state senator turned ambassador to Sweden.
