I have known Tamara since 2005 when she arrived to Nonprofit HR ready and eager to learn. As a professional, she quickly learned how to service nonprofits and listen, understand, and advise them on their unique human resource needs. I also consider her one of the few social media gurus that understand the brilliance in speaking to followers and building an online presence that appeals to a diverse audience.
Tamara was able to merge the best of both worlds bridging her expertise as an HR generalist with that of social media brilliantly. Her ability to provide consultative guidance and be influential are just two of the characteristics that the profession requires. When we ask people to be entrepreneurial, she often thought outside the box to bring her most creative and innovative self to the conversation.
