Hello there! My name is Tamara but everyone calls me Tami. I am a 34 year old, crazy blue haired mama, wife, nurse, and creative. Thank you for checking out my blog/shoppe and for wanting to know a little more about yours truly.
I graduated with my Bachelors in Nursing in December 2011. In the years since, I have worked in ED, NICU, Pediatrics, HEDIS, long term care, and now the magnificent niche of hospice.
I am currently a Hospice Nurse Case Manager, and have been since January of 2018. Hospice literally saved my nursing career. After almost two years of doing everything I could BUT nursing, I came back to care for the dying, their families, and loved ones. I am honored to care for my patients in their last chapters of their lives. My goals are to always provide peace, comfort, and dignity in death. This has given me incredible purpose. I want to show others the power of nursing at the end of life and how death doesn't have to be scary, painful, or undignified.
On the creative side, I am a designer and artist. I mostly work with fabrics, sewing, and dying. I am tie dye obsessed (if you haven't noticed!) Now that I have my feet beneath me and feel more confident in my hospice position, I have started reaching for that sewing machine. So keep your eyes peeled for some fresh pieces in the Shoppe.
I hope you enjoy my blog & Shoppe! Feel free to connect through the social icons below!
Peace, love, & dignity,
