Tamie’s experience with animals started at a very early age, she grew up on a small hobby farm that always had a variety of animals running around. In her home, the animals were treated more as family members than pets. Her love for animals grew as she got older and now she appreciates them in a different way. To Tamie, animals bring a certain calmness and activity to each day. In her words, “Animals force you to be patient and build trust, both great skills to have in all areas of life”! Tamie and her family currently have a pit-mix and they love to spend time with her outdoors and take her to the local parks and lakes. 

During her free time, Tamie also loves to swim and hike during the summer, travel ( the warmer the climate the better ) and spend time gardening and digging in the dirt with her young daughter.
