Tamara Michael is actively involved with the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and its students in Winston Salem, NC and other community organizations after retiring from a 30+ year career with the U.S. Postal Service. While in the Postal Service, she relocated often for opportunities and promotions with increasing responsibilities. She holds a BA from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA. Tamara loves to explore the world, visiting 38% of the countries. She intends to continue her country-visited quest and considers traveling to North Korea and Iran as wonderful opportunities for adventure and experiencing unique cultures. Purity, a fifteen-year old blue-eyed cat, likes when Tamara stays home and curl up on her lap.
