Tami’s passion for nursing dates started back in high school when a seasoned registered nurse at UCLA Medical Center mentored her. Tami then followed her mentor’s footsteps and earned her Bachelor Degree in Nursing from USC in 2001. Her thirst for more knowledge continued as she received her Master’s Degree in Nursing, specializing in Women’s Health Care, from CSULB in 2005. From 2006 to 2017,
Tami worked as a Nurse Practitioner for Mission OBGYN Medical Group where she cared for female patients throughout the lifespan. She continues to stay active in the nursing community as a member of both Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health.
In 2017, Tami joined Gateway Rehab and Wellness Center to align her professional focus, sports and rehabilitation medicine, with her personal focus of healthy living and regular exercise. Tami is married with 3 active daughters.
