About Tamara

I became a Caregiver because I have seen a lot of persons suffering not only from an illness or a pain but loneliness and feeling cast aside. This world is in need of loving and caring people. I have lo to give because I have received a lot too. I think I am a person who can make a difference on someone's life. It is very rewarding to hear a "thank you" or just simply a smile. I love to interact and make people laugh. I love to show them that we all are individually created but we all need people who care and love us just the way we are. I enjoy the feeling of changing a life. I am very positive and optimistic. I always find the golden and colorful side of everything. Coming to this country, being free and able to pursue any dream makes appreciate human beings and life more. I have accomplished all my dreams. I have been married for 18 beautiful years, have two daughters- who are my everything- bought a house, pursued a career, and all what I have dreamed and more has come true. I never dreamed about getting all this freedom and happiness where I was born. I come from a country where I was not allow to speak. Here, I have found happiness.
