She has returned to us from St. Louis, Missouri where she graduated from Eden Theological Seminary May of 2008.
Previously, she taught at Texas A&M University as a Lecturer in the Health & Kinesiology Department from 1995-2005.
Originally from the small panhandle town of Olton, Texas, Tamara
claims a connection to the land that will often arise with stories of wind, sand, cotton and corn.
Interestingly she has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with a minor in Earth Science from Wayland Baptist University located in Plainview, Texas as well as a Master of Agriculture in Recreation Resource Management from Texas A&M.
recreation degree led to a teaching position in the Activity Program within the H & K department.

Coming back to Friends
after the completion of her
Master of Divinity degree from Eden, she
is excited and glad to come back to the church that for 10 years has been a place of nourishment, challenge and growth.
