Tamara’s Work Experience
I started in healthcare as a direct care staff for people with developmental and physicalb disabilities which I did for 12 years. This job was a challenge, but I think it has some similarities to working in pediatrics which is a benefit for me. I returned to school to obtain my L.P.N. license in 2007 and continued working as a nurse for the same company through 2016. I transitioned to geriatrics in 2017 and worked with veterans at the state nursing home which was an honor. My last position was at a rehabilitation and long-term care center. The best part of geriatrics was talking with the residents and hearing all their stories.
my fondest childhood memory
A memory that stands out for me growing up was my best friend and I going to see Def Leppard at Red Rocks. We were 13 and even got a quick backstage tour since her summer job was with the management company.
WHAT MAKES ME SMILE
Outside of work I spend my time with my boyfriend, son, and our 2 orange tabby cats- Honey and Pumpkin. I also enjoy bargain hunting at thrift stores and listening to live music.
