Tamara hails from the small town of Ashtabula, Ohio. She has two teenage children, Hailee and Cyrus, who are her encouragement and her inspiration. She got her start in human resources as a recruiter in Washington, DC, where she quickly learned the business of staffing and client and candidate relationship building. After leaving WDC to head to Florida, she landed in technical recruiting – just in time for the legendary Y2K. She recruited for several years, quickly taking on leadership and training roles before transitioning to HR/talent management.
Working her way to executive level human resources management, Tamara found herself and her team at the unfortunate end of the economy driven employment downturn. Determined to continue doing what she loves, within weeks she partnered with a former client and began consulting full-time. Due to her great success managing multiple initiatives and the additional clients requesting her services, her HR Consulting company, IntelliTalent Management Consulting, Inc., was born.
