Tamara grew up in Northern California, on a small farm, which is where her love of animals stems from. At 17, she moved with her family to a larger farm in Missouri , which had many more animals to care for. Tamara participated in 4-H and local rodeos. While in Missouri, she attended college and received her BFA in Theatre. She moved to Los Angeles in 2000 and had a 10 year carrier in H.R. before realizing her heart needed to work with animals.
For 5 years, she had her own dog training and dog walking business, then returned to school for her Registered Veterinary Technician license. Tamara started working at a vet hospital in 2013 as a receptionist/technician assistant. In short time, she was promoted to technician and managed the reception desk.
Tamara earned her RVT license in 2017 and has loved all the opportunities and experienced it has lead to. In her spare time, she loves camping, hiking, horseback riding, and spending time with her husband, dog, and friends.
