Gammon has been a member of the faculty at Robinson Secondary for 13 years. Under her direction, the Robinson Middle School bands won the John Philip Sousa Foundation Sudler Cup in 1997, the highest honor given to a middle school band. Robinson Middle’s symphonic band performed at the 2000, 1993, and 1992 Virginia Music Educators Conferences and at the 1999 and 1993 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinics in Chicago.

Currently president of the Virginia Music Educators Association (VMEA), Gammon is a past president of the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association and the Fairfax County Band Directors Association. She is active as an adjudicator and guest conductor throughout the United States and Canada.
