In this field, she has combined her loves of traveling and writing. She is currently a Hotel Concierge at the same property and is currently transitioning to a Journalism major at California State University of Long Beach. “The world is my bucket list.”
Fun Fact: Tamara was formerly a Cast Member at Disneyland in the Entertainment department.
