Personal Data:

Tammy J. Covil considers herself extremely lucky to have had the privilege of calling Wilmington home for more than 30 years. After graduating from E.A. Laney High School in 1987, she earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in accounting while working full-time. Shortly thereafter, she married her husband, Tommy Covil. Tommy is a Wilmington native and small business owner. They are the proud parents of four children, all of whom attend New Hanover County public schools. Their youngest sons will graduate high school in 2019.

In addition to overseeing the family business and working part-time managing the business operations of a 501 (c) 3 organization, she also owns a freelance accounting firm that provides a wide range of professional accounting and management advisory services.

Mrs. Covil has spent many years volunteering in various organizations within the community including the Eaton Elementary School and Emma B. Trask Middle School Parent Teacher Organizations and The Pretty in Pink Foundation. In her spare time she enjoys running, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
