Tassie Bethany

Director of Perception Programming

Hey, Neighbor! As Director of Perception Programming for VCM, Inc. I work as a resource and liaison to all VCM, Inc. Perception team members throughout Texas. My goal is not only to bring neighbors together by cultivating a strong sense of community through engaging, diverse, and inclusive Lifestyle events but to enhance our delivery of this unique service by creating avenues for the Perception Department to learn, idea share, showcase their creativity, and to be a part of something bigger than themselves.

I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. In my free time, I enjoy losing myself in a good book, cheering my daughter on as she competes in JROTC competitions, learning the ins and outs of Minecraft with my son, or spending quality time with friends.

As the Senior Perception Manager, I’m dedicated to ensuring my team and the residents are connected within the communities.

I am an event coordinator with a background in arranging top tier events within the DFW region while also having a history within the Business Management Corporate field. Growing up in the inner city of Dallas, TX, I’ve had the pleasure in connecting with various of individuals and understanding in their needs and pleasures and I plan to bring those skills to the communities of the VCM properties.

Teala Tyree

Perception Manager

I have been in the marketing field for about 8 years. Its exciting to be a perception manager because I get to do what I love just on a smaller scale and less travel. One thing I look forward to while creating memorable events is seeing all the families and the joy on their faces.
