Salem Presence
At A Glance
As a child, Tamara knew she wanted to act. But it wasn't until she was in college that she realized she wanted to pursue it as a career. She was excelling in school as a psychology major, spending all of her spare time pursuing a minor in drama and theatre. After a lot of self-exploration, Tamara made the decision to pursue her passion full time and immediately enrolled in acting classes in her hometown of Chicago.

Tamara went on to London to study at the Royal Academy of the Dramatic Arts for a summer where she studied Shakespeare and spent time backpacking through Europe. She returned to Chicago to continue studying and landed a commercial agent. Commercial work came quickly for the actress and she finally made the decision to move to Los Angeles in the summer of 1995. She almost immediately booked an agent and her first guest-starring role on The Sentinel. This was followed by guest-starring roles on Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Party of Five, 7th Heaven, and The Pretender, among others. Her film credits include a featured role in Soul Food and a leading role in the independent feature film Fallen Arches.

Tamara resides in Los Angeles and in her free time she enjoys writing, spending time with friends, hiking and studying film.
