Tamara has been raising funds for nonprofits since she was 11-years old. She began her professional career in development in 1990 and was promoted into nonprofit management in 1996. In the middle of a career she loves, she was Blessed with the opportunity to fulfill another passion and she stayed home with her young children. While doing so, she discovered she was still drawn to serve the community in some capacity, so she served on several nonprofit boards and committees as a volunteer and often as the Chair of an event.
Tamara returned to the nonprofit workforce and continued with organizations that serve children, students within educational settings, and those in need of health services. She is excited that The Gentle Barn provides opportunities and meets needs in all of these important areas. And even better, she is able to include her love for animals into her daily work for the first time.
Tamara admires and appreciates the kindness, fun, and energy that emanates from The Gentle Barn supporters! She is elated to have become a member of The Gentle Barn Family and invites you to join her as a volunteer and donor.
