Vouch for them.

Rose-Ann Papalias
They're my friends  •  Volunteer-Bereavement, Snowline Hospice and Stay at Home Mom, None.
Tamara is a great motivator and still maintains business relationships with her former students from her teaching days. She has been able to ... cultivate working relationships worldwide. Employees are motivated and are productive under her supervision.

Roger Beeston

James B. Williamson
We worked together  •  Owner/Optical Engineer: Design, develop, and test optical systems and devices., Technical Optics, LLC. Stanford grad.
First , Tamara is very knowledgeable technically. Excellent grasp of Electrical Engineering and smart, smart, smart. You could discuss some ... arcane technical detail with her today and she'd still know the details and be able to extrapolate on it a year from now. But more importantly, Tamara has something generally severely lacking in most techies; She is exceptionally good with people. Warm , friendly, and a great communicator. And she can handle stressful times with superiors, peers, and subordinates with grace and ease in situations that would make most of us cry. Even without her deep technical knowledge, she is makes an excellent adviser for that reason alone. (PS: why doesn't your spell checker recognize Advisor? It places a red line under the word! Adviser yes, Advisor no)
Carolyn Robinson
We worked together  •  Integrated Marketing Manager, Xilinx. Previously Sr. Global Corporate Communications Manager, Rambus.
Tamara has an amazing (and somewhat unique) ability to help make extremely technical concepts understandable. She can do this one-on-one, to ... a classroom, or through a written article. Her patience, enthusiasm, and energy are contagious! On top of this, she is very motivating and supportive.
Mark Adams
We worked together  •  Senior Vice President, CUI Inc. Previously VP of Global Sales & Advanced Power Marketing, CUI Inc.
Tamara is one of the smartest people I have had the opportunity to do business with. She couples her intelligence with wit and honesty in he ... r approach to business and problem solving. I truly enjoy working with her...and in the busy world we live in, that is critical to moving forward and doing business together.

We worked together  •  Owner/Optical Engineer: Design, develop, and test optical systems and devices., Technical Optics, LLC. Stanford grad.
James is driven by cool ideas. He is both trustworthy and loyal. Though we haven't worked together in a few years, he jumped right in to h ... elp me with a new project--finding background material and an online conference to help me come up to speed in my company's experimental area. And he recommends great music!
