Tamara joined Healthy Alliance because she believes all people deserve quality resources and community supports that allow them to not only live but to thrive. Earning a BSW and MSW from the University at Albany has supported and granted Tamara the ability to collaborate with people from many walks of life. She spent the beginning of her career working in various foster care, mental health, substance abuse, public health, and policy community agencies in the Capital District. Tamara is looking forward to building new opportunities with community organizations through her work with Healthy Alliance. In her free time, she explores the world around her with family and friends through food, museums, and travel.
