Tamera is a Texas native, born and raised in the “Heart of Texas.” As a passionate artist who viewed art classes like cupcakes with sprinkles, the only career path for her was an art degree from the University of North Texas. Amid the naysayers that it was a waste of time, she proved them wrong by capitalizing on her BFA in Photography as Production Manager for both Michaels Stores, Inc., the Neiman Marcus Group, and most recently teaching art in the Midland ISD.
Leaving Texas to come to Indiana was a hard decision, but the pursuit of a life of possibilities outside of work was the driving force for her and her husband to come to Bedford. With their son and his family soon making their way to Indiana, there are only two of their kids left to join them, their two crazy German Shepherds, and three rescue cats. Tamera and her husband are planning on spending time together at local campgrounds with their pups and lots of Christmas lights. If you're lucky enough to spot them, you could be the recipient of an “I’m sorry about what I said when I was backing in the trailer” sticker!
