Veterinary Assistant and Lead Groomer
Tamara is a familiar and welcome face for many friends of the Cat Care Clinic. She has been a team member for over 15 years and has created memories and bonds with our patients like they are her own cats. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from UW Stevens Point in Wildlife Biology, and worked at the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas before moving closer to family in Madison. She is skilled in all areas of the clinic and knows our patients and clients so well.
Aside from caring for her own family of three cats (nervous Kramer, chirping Tadpole, and smart little Cheetos) when she’s not in the clinic, Tamara enjoys weight lifting, canoeing, camping, and hiking.
Her words of wisdom: “Listen to the cat—they always win”.
