After a small stint in the oil industry, her passion for exploration led her to Johnson Space Center. Tamara seeks to continue mankind’s quest of the universe as a member of Flight Operations and most recently the Human Health and Performance area of space exploration. Her desire to serve the community and passion for horses, combined with the understanding of their healing nature, led her to seek out the opportunity to serve on the SoléAna Stales Board of Directors.
