About: Tamra

I am originally from Colorado. I moved to New Jersey on a corporate relocation in 2000. After working for a large consumer products company for seven years, I started my first business, Senior Helpers, which allowed me to provide resources for seniors to be able to remain at home and live independently. In 2016, I sold my business and decided to relocate to Tucson to be closer to my parents in Colorado and to also move somewhere that is warm and that I could be active all year.

I started another business shortly after moving to Tucson and am very active in the community. I am a member of the Tucson Breakfast Lions Club, a service organization that raises funds to help local and international causes. We help provide eyeglasses and vision screening to those who don't have the resources to be able to afford it themselves. We also participate in fundraisers to help developmentally disabled and deaf and blind children.

Although I believe that my Rheumatoid Arthritis began around 2013, I was officially diagnosed by a Rheumatologist a few years ago. I have been fortunate to attend some of the Tucson Arthritis Support Network meetings and am grateful for the support I have received as well as any that I have been able to provide to other participants. In the past, I have facilitated an Alzheimer's support group and would like to be more involved with the Tucson Arthritis Support Network.

I am passionate about community service and being able to help others. I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to co-facilitate the Tucson Live Yes! Connect with Kevin Purcell.

I am excited to join Kevin in facilitating this support group because I am passionate about helping others and serving the community. I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and would like the opportunity to provide support to others with arthritis.
