TAMI PUTS HER HEART AND SOUL INTO HER WORK AND SHE LIVES A LIFE THAT IS THE BEST EXAMPLE OF GIVING!
As an RN and Teen Pregnancy and Parenting Initiative Coordinator in Wichita, Kansas, Tami puts her “heart and soul into her work and she lives a life that is the best example of giving,” her nominator, friend, and supervisor Frances shares. Frances says Tami was always drawn to run a maternity home, where she guides and advocates for pregnant young women, who are struggling with motherhood at the tender age of 13-23, to give them and their babies a healthy start. Tami supports their fears about their deliveries, NEVER misses a birth, and then she begins to help them understand the life-long commitment they have made to parenting.
Frances shares that Tami has been working two jobs since August, running the maternity home, while also running the ‘M.O.M.’ (Moving On To Motherhood), aka ‘mommy mobile’, program which provides targeted case management, counseling and crisis intervention, parenting education, and more for more than 35 pregnant/parenting youth.
We’re so inspired by you, Tami, as you walk the walk and talk the talk of a Viva Babe, lifting the lives of all you connect with!
