Tami grew up on a farm in Vale, Oregon. Within this small community, she learned the value of hard work and the importance of having strong ethics.
After graduating high school, she moved to Boise to attend Boise Bible College for 2 years, earning an Associate’s degree in Christian Education. She met and married her husband, Nate, in 1996. Together they moved to Cincinnati, OH in 1997 for Nate to continue his education and earn a Master’s degree. During that time Tami worked to put her husband through school.
Near the end of his schooling, they decided to start their family and after completing his degree, they moved back to Idaho. Their oldest son, Samuel, was born in 2000, followed by their second son, Shawn in 2003 and their daughter, Bethany in 2005. Her children are a constant joy in her life and that is where you will usually find her when not at work.
Tami was a stay at home mom for 12 years. During that time, she ran in in-home day care off and on and practiced residential real estate.
