Hi, I’m Tamara! 

My Story

I promised myself when I was in grade school that I would learn how to write a book one day. Well that day came when I had an idea for a novel and finally sat down to put it on paper. Many days, weeks, and rough drafts later–I’d written my first holiday romance novel. I fell in love with the creative process and the ability to share the story I’d created with others. After I’d written four novels and a short memoir, I had the opportunity to return to school and finish my degree in another area I loved– Marriage and Family Studies. As an intern during my senior year, I discovered Life Coaching.  When I learned coaching involved collaboration, support, and helping others realize their potential, I wanted in! Living a creative life–or creating my best life has been a journey–often joyful, sometimes soul-stretching,  but always worthwhile. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to help others create their best lives too.


My Values 


I value real people, real experiences, and real emotions. Living a creative life relies on being genuine and authentic with oneself and others. 

Growth Mindset

Abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. A growth mindset encompasses a love of learning and a willingness to persist at overcoming obstacles and reaching goals. 


“Optimism is true moral courage.” Ernest Shackleton. Optimism can improve our health and create opportunities for a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
