Tamara came to the Russian River in Healdsburg when she met her husband in 1990. In the summer cabin he renovated, they raised their son in the water, on the banks, and among the hills across from Fitch Mountain. She feels lucky that the river is part of her daily life, and is proud to be supporting Russian Riverkeeper’s work. With a background in education and accounting, Tamara has worked for non-profits including the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, and currently volunteers with the Ceres Community Project. She enjoys hiking, singing and cooking, and spends most evenings ballroom dancing.
