Meet Tamara

I have many interests I enjoy when I am not helping clients. As part of the Guide Dogs for the Blind program in Boring, Oregon and San Rafael, California, I have been a volunteer puppy raiser for the Pups with Vision Puppy Raising Club. I have volunteered with Friends of Trees, St. Andrew Legal Clinic, Rose City Gymnastics Academy, the Portland Fruit Tree Project, and have been trained as a Neighborhood Tree Steward with Portland Urban Forestry.

I have been a member of Daybreak Cohousing, an intentional community in North Portland, residing there for more than eight years.

I also thoroughly enjoy spending time with my partner, my two daughters, and pets, and enjoy gardening and walking in the beautiful Pacific Northwest forests.
