Tamara began working for EPIC in July 2022. She comes to EPIC with 10 years experience in hospitality and a lot of knowledge around helping young people into the workforce. She’s excited to learn absolutely everything she can about the disability employment field. Tamara knows first-hand what it is like to lack confidence and feels she can help lift spirits and gain an ‘I can do’ attitude. The most rewarding thing about working for EPIC is knowing that she’s helped someone change their living situation or mindset from negative to positive. In her spare time, Tamara likes to catch up with family, go on random unorganised adventures, and watch movies and snack.
