Welcome back to our “Meet the Therapists” series! We hope you enjoyed meeting Justine last week. This week we will introduce Tamara! Tamara has been with the company since May of 2017. She is a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist. Read on to find out more about Tamara:
Where are you from? - I grew up in northern New Jersey. However, I spent 6 years in Baltimore for my undergraduate and graduate degrees, so I also have a special space in my heart for Maryland.
What do you like most about Boston? - I like the history of the Boston area. I feel like you can always walk around and find something interesting to do or see.
How did you decide to become an SLP? - I worked at a special needs summer camp during high school, and I loved learning about all of the different pathways of communication available to children and adults. I did some research and tailored my college search to only include Communication Sciences majors; the rest is history!
What are your professional areas of interest? - I really enjoy working with all of the different areas of speech-language therapy. My top three areas of interest are language, executive functioning, and literacy.
What do you like to do in your free time? - I really love to cook—I’ve been on a soup-in-the-Instant Pot kick recently. I also love to read and hike!
What is your favorite food? - My favorite food is popcorn, specifically salty or savory popcorn. My absolute favorite kitchen item is my air popper!
What is an interesting fact about yourself? - I was a pescatarian for about 4 years and just stopped about 3 months ago.
