Avid Question-Asker. Reproductive Justice Enthusiast. Dedicated Swiftie.
Tamara is the Base UWS Partner and is so thrilled to be, along with her husband Danny, building a vibrant, diverse, and explorative Jewish community on the Upper West Side. While originally from Sacramento, CA, Tamara has been living on the East Coast and in the Midwest for well over a decade, and is looking forward to adding New York City to her list of places she has been fortunate enough to call home.
Tamara is a lawyer who received her J.D. from Suffolk University in Boston, MA. Tamara works as the Chief of Staff at Mayday Health, a non-profit that educates folks on medication abortion and how to access it in all 50 U.S. states. She is passionate about using her love of policy, law, operations, and strategic thinking to contribute to health equity and access, and feels privileged to have been given the opportunity to merge her passions with a career.
Growing up active in the Reform movement, it was through camp and youth group that Tamara found her true love of Jewish community, exploration of Jewish questions, and Tikkun Olam. While living in Chicago, Tamara worked in the Jewish community doing teen engagement work. In this role, she had the exciting opportunity to participate in the M² Educators Cohort and explore methodology and programming around experiential education in Jewish settings.
Tamara loves eating (and making!) sushi, traveling to visit friends and family, trying new Peloton workouts, and taking long walks on Shabbat with no destination in mind. You can reach Tamara by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
