Tamara graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph in 2003. She is native to Ottawa, but after veterinary school she practiced small animal medicine in downtown Toronto for a number of years before coming back to Ottawa to stay.

Tamara grew up with a wide array of pets – dogs, cats, birds, pocket pets and fish. She always knew she loved animals but did not realize that veterinary medicine was her main passion until she was doing her undergraduate degree in biology at the University of Ottawa. Currently, she has three great cats – Sammy (who is crazy smart), Sally and 17 year old Milo. Her main interests in the veterinary field include internal medicine, surgery, and pain management.

Outside of work, Tamara enjoys yoga and spending time with her young son and husband.
