Tamara will be taking charge of our new Parish Health and Wellness Ministry. This program, currently being expanded and renewed, will serve Christ Church in the areas of basic diagnostic and referral consultations (including our monthly blood pressure screening), as well as providing Health Education through ongoing health related events.
Tamara has been a member of CC Parish since 2001. She graduated from San Jose State University in 1974 with a degree in Nursing. She has worked as a nurse in various capacities in the hospital, neuro-surgery, thoracic and vascular surgery unit and switched to Labor and Delivery after several years in San Jose. She also worked as Director of Utilization Management at an HMO in San Jose. For the last 10 years she has worked as a Nurse Consultant to Insurance Companies and Health Management Organizations.
With her recent retirement, she now has time to devote her talents to our Parish – and we are so glad she has chosen this Ministry!
