Like Judy, Tamara is a recovering attorney. She practiced corporate and securities law at leading law firms in California and Texas, with a focus on small start-up companies. She also spent one year in-house at a technology firm in Plano, Texas where she spearheaded their initial public offering. Prior to practicing law, she was in public accounting for over four years. She retired from the practice of law in March 2001 to travel, read and catch up with the world around her.
Once retired, at the urging of her husband, Tamara picked up both golf and skiing at the ripe old age of 42. Although her handicap is still in the high 20's, low 30's and moguls are NOT her friend, she enjoys both sports immensely. She even attempted her hand at the piano, and joined two book clubs to stay connected with friends when not traveling. One of her greatest joys, however, is spending time with her grandchildren, who in case you were wondering, are truly the most beautiful creatures ever to grace this earth.
Tamara has a Masters of Management degree from the J.L. Kellogg School of Management, a Juris Doctor degree from Northwestern University School of Law and a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
