A native Montrealer, Tamara fell in love with fundraising when she was only a teen. Inspired by a chocolate bar fundraiser in high school to raise funds for children in need, she enlisted her friends and family and raised the most money in her ninth grade class. This ignited her deep passion for charitable work and a need to work in the non-profit world.
