Tamara’s mission is to be of service in this world by using her voice to give voice to the voiceless, to tell the stories tucked into the corners of neighborhoods, buried deep in the soul of the old lady shelling peas on the porch; the story behind the black eye, the ripped blouse, and the homeless man with the big smile.

Tamara is a gentle, but exacting guide for writers and other creative souls. Her primary messages are: Everything is possible and your life matters!

In addition to her coaching practice, Tamara is an experienced and sought-after motivational speaker whose wise words lift the spirit, hug what hurts, and models hope and resilience. She is an eloquent and heart-centered communicator.

“I am the Human Civil Rights Coordinator for Okinawa, Japan. I was looking for a speaker to come to Okinawa and present a course that teachers could receive college credit. I was told about this dynamite speaker who had presented in Germany. On those remarks, I invited Mrs. Tamara Hamilton to present in Okinawa. I found her to be an orator and a motivational speaker. She provided wonderful handouts, video, and little token gifts when we volunteered to come before the group. She is a wealth of knowledge and there was never a dull moment. Teachers said to me, “this is the best class I have ever taken.”
Yvonne H. Brown, Course facilitator
