She values the time she spends every day learning and creating new Marketing materials, along with the rise and changes of social media and digital marketing. 

Tamara’s role on the Risk Care Team is very critical, day in and day out.

Along with that, she was given the role to coincide with her Marketing position as Practice Base Manager. What does Practice base Manager mean? Tamara quotes, “What this means to me is supporting and take care of each patient whether it’s educating the patients on the importance of closing their gaps in care or even as simple as scheduling them transportation to provide the best quality of care with access to all patients. Being a part of Riverside and now OptumCare, I feel that I have all the resources available to achieve my goals.”
