Tamara’s Bio

My name is Tamara and I am a 26-year-old recently graduated recreation therapist who is looking for employment from mid-June until the end of August 2014. My fiance and I are relocating to New England and will be living and working in Connecticut for the summer in preparation for new jobs in the fall. I have worked with children all of my life which started with helping to raise my much younger brother and sister throughout my late childhood and adolescense. I am an athlete and former college varsity basketball player who went on to coach children after I stopped playing competitively five years ago. I have taught children and teens from 4 to 17 years old and spent six years coaching girls at both the competitive club and school level.
I have worked in a variety of environments and roles during my recreation therapy training and much of this time was spent working with children and adolescents. I spent one summer running a camp for children with multiple and severe disabilities, I have worked with adolescents with mental illness in a hospital-setting and also served as the coordinator for an after-school cooking program geared towards underpriviledged youth. I have most recently been helping to run programs for an older population of adults with Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias at the Alzheimer's Society.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Human Sciences with a specialization in Recreation Therapy from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and have also taken many courses in Psychology. I am a native speaker of English and Serbo-Croatian and I speak proficient French. I will be updating my CPR certification in May/June in preparation for all of my work that is to come. I am an avid biker, runner and cook and I love to spend time outdoors. I also endlessly value my family, my partner and all those close to me and I try to do well by them. I am a responsible, respectful, caring and hardworking person who loves to work with children but also people in general.
