Tamara began her career in operations and human resources for corporate companies in 2003. In 2006, she became co-owner of 3 for-profit companies.  After a few short years, she started feeling something significant was missing in her career path. 

In 2008, she switched to nonprofit work where she quickly fell in love.  In this new, more fulfilling journey, she has acquired 14+ years of experience in human services including roles as Human Resources Supervisor for a nonprofit agency serving abused and neglected youth, Human Resources Business Partner for a large IDD provider, and her current role as Director of HR at Dayspring Homes, Inc. 

When Tamara is not tackling the fun and exciting world of HR, she enjoys quality time with her daughter - Priya Noelle, listening to music, meditating, party/event planning, and learning to speak Italian.
